New Mt Wellington Guide now available online

1:52:19 PM

The contents of the current draft of the new Mt Wellington guide are now available on, at

The online guide contains the full content of the printed version of the guide, in terms of climb descriptions and topos. The printed version will be generated from this content. You are free to print out the online version for your own uses, however the more convenient hardcopy printed version is not too far away.

The current state of the guide is the product of many months of work by Tony McKenny, Al Adams, Dave Humphries, Jon Nermut, and a host of other contributors. Many thanks to all involved in the project so far, it is great that we are starting to see the products of our labour.

The current status of the guide is draft. We are working towards version 1.0 of the printed guide being available around August. At this stage we are seeking objective feedback and comments, and any new routes that are missing. Subjective comments on grading and stars will be taken on board, but not necessarily acted on, at the discretion of the editors. We are also still taking photo submissions for the printed guide. See the Feedback page for how to get information to the editors, or add a comment to this post.

Great work Jon and others, last time I climbed at Mt Wellington I was routefinding by zooming around on digital photos taken earlier that morning of the guide in the Hobart library!

Great work Jon.

Good to see Simon Parson's massive mega pitch combination and straightening of Pleasant Scream's has made it in.

Completely unreported on the mainland, Simon eliminated the hanging belay plus the step right into Brown Madonna to end up with a 50 metre single pitch classic!

I stand corrected. It was reported earlier on d-news

If you havent done so, it would be worth checking out the great interview with Simon Parsons on the Articles section of this website. A informative and revealling piece about one of Australians greatest all-round climbers.

Paricularly so given the interview was done at a time when he was suffering through a terrible run with injury, and must had grave doubts abut whether he would ever climb hard again.
