Description

Mount Alexander is a granite peak rising 350 meters above the surrounding area (744m above sea level). The rock is a pretty solid grey/white granite.

There are a number of good sports climbs, trad climbs, and bouldering problems.

Access issues

Most of Mt. Alexander is a national park, so while climbing is permitted general rules apply; dogs are not permitted, ask before bolting, etc.

Approach

The mount is ~125km north of Melbourne. Approach on the Calder Freeway (M79), and take the Harcourt exit.

To reach the southern crags/boulders:

From the "town centre" drive south on the Calder Highway (C794), turn left on Farraday-Sutton Grange road and then left again on Joseph Young Drive.

To reach to northern crags/boulders:

Either follow Joseph Young Drive across the mountain, or: Drive north from the "town centre" on Calder Highway (C794) to turn right on Market Street, and then left on Reservoir road.
