Trail Rating: Challenging Size: 121.07 hectares Location: Langford Established: 1994


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.
