Wary about being wrong (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

awry

'being wrong' is the definition.
('awry' can be a synonym of 'wrong')

'wary about' is the wordplay.
'about' indicates anagramming the letters.
'wary' is an anagram of 'AWRY'.

(Other definitions for awry that I've seen before include "Distorted, crooked" , "Wary but distorted." , "Out of kilter" , "(Gone) askew" , "the wrong direction" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
