Mt Wells is one of the most popular areas in Victoria. The Approaches are short, and the rock fairly bomber. With the introduction of the hammer drill in the mid-'90s there was a surge of new routes put up. Now, most of the area is sport climbs, although there's still plenty of trad routes for the adventurer.
