Summary

Typically this granite outcrop of boulders and slabs offers mostly short low angled face climbs on rough rock with small holds.

Description

Only 352 m in height the granite peaks of the You Yangs dominate the Werribee lava plains and are clearly identifiable from Melbourne and beyond.

Access issues

January 2020 - Great Circle Drive is now open again.

National Park. Parks Vic website (Oct 2014) says "[...] Bookings are required for groups. Individuals are not required to book, but should check with the Park Office to enquire about the availability of sites. [...]"

Approach

You Yangs Regional Park is 55 km south-west of Melbourne and 22 km north of Geelong (Melway ref: Key map 11). Access to the park from the Geelong-Melbourne Freeway is clearly signposted via Little River or Lara.

Ethic

Mixed climbing with trad and some sports options, as well as bouldering. Bring hangar plates, as many climbs are equipped with carrot bolts.
