  <header name="Mt Wellington" rock="Sandstone and dolerite" walk="0min to 30min" sun="Mixed sun and shade" intro="Mt Wellington offers some good opportunities for bouldering. Its a bit scattered, and dolerite is an acquired taste for bouldering. But there are lots of problems, particularly moderates with easy access for after work climbing." access="From the centre of Hobart drive up Davey Street, which becomes Huon Road, for 9.6km. Just before Fern Tree a well sign posted road (Pillinger Drive) leads off sharply to the right and winds up the mountain. Follow this for 4.2km to reach the Springs. Another 2.5km further on is a small parking bay on the left hand side of the road, which is the parking area for the Organ Pipes. To reach Lost World continue up past the parking area for a few more kilometres to a big leftwards bend in the road (9.1 km from the turn off). Keep going up the road to reach the Summit. The areas are described in the order you reach them up Pinnacle Rd." id="562" acknowledgement="" history="" camping="" autonumber="false"/>
