Mt Buffalo, a huge granite plateau, is home to abseilers from across the world. At 300 metres (984 feet) in height, the North Wall of Mt Buffalo Gorge is the most famous climbing destination of Mt Buffalo that’s internationally regarded as an abseiling challenge and in the top 3 of Victorian climbing destinations.

Test your determination with the first descent abseiling 160m (523ft) on a single rope in an area normally only accessible to skilled rock climbers down to a large ledge. We then use double rope ‘pull down’ systems to descend a further 3 x 50m (164ft) pitches to the gorge floor, stopping on small ledges. The descent can take up to 3.5 hours dependent on group size, experience and weather.  From the bottom of the cliff, we take a short walk to have lunch at a nearby brook.

The route back is via a creek crossing, then a climb directly up a steep crevasse to the top of the gorge. Some areas need to be top roped as there is rock climbing involved.  In wet weather, there is an alternative route back.
