Description

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.

No fires are permitted on Mt Wells. Leave no trace. Please do not top rope the hardware.
Any unsafe hardware can be reported to SICA or CASBC

Please park perpendicular to the road to maximize parking spots. Before altering any existing routes, please ask permission of the FA party. Helmets are a must at Mt Wells as rockfall is a regular occurrence. Please use the outhouse at the first parking lot on humpback road. Do not pee down onto lower crags.

Please be aware of wildflowers moss and fauna. the pathways can be very slippery after rain and icey in the winter. during snow many of the crags are unsafe due to westerly winds knocking ice down 


Getting There

Only a 5-10 minutes to most crags. Trailhead is on Humpback Rd. Google map directions here (from generic Victoria lociation): http://goo.gl/maps/6hQv6
