Crag features

Popular due to its close proximty to Melbourne (45 minutes drive) Werribee Gorge offers a range of single pitch sport and trad routes on composite sandstone like rock. A lot of construction work has been undertaken recently to minmise the environmental impact of climbing including many fixed belay posts at the top of the crag. Note care should be taken as the rock is brittle and loose in many places. For further reading see:

famously rubbish to melbourne locals, but not too bad. some of the bolted lines are good, esp the the minor classic redex irlont sudano and its much harder neighbour nero on the rampage. worth a day out if stuck in melbourne.
