Description:Wonderlands was founded on the 2nd May of 1991, by Gavin Dean, Keith Bennett and John Kennedy from the Forestry Commission. The potential for rock climbing was soon realised, after inspecting the 1 km multi-tiered cliff line. Many superb onsite cracks were done by Gavin Dean, Keith Bennett, Allan Stevens, Dick Curtis and Ed Sharp. These were done in the months of June and July. Many fine wall routes were also bolted in this period. Bring your bolt plates!
Location:From Glenreagh take the Upper Corindi Road, for approx. 20 kms until you reach Plum Pudding Road. Turn right here and follow this road for approx., 5kms taking the second track on your right, Free Grass Road. Follow this rd and take the next right, called Lionel Loop Trail, and follow to the end. There is two or three other alternative routes to this area. Refer to a local area map. Facing west, walk right, down a prominent trail for about 600 to 700 meters. Descend a five-foot gully. Climbs in this guide are all marked form left to right facing the cliff line.
