I’ve been looking forward to adding the Mt. William climb guide to the site for a while. It’s a climb that truly epitomises the idea that the satisfaction of riding to the top of a mountain on your own steam is more than worth the struggle to do so.
Found in the Grampians National Park in Western Victoria, the Mt. William climb starts roughly 13km south of Halls Gap and is 11.5km long.
The final 1.9km of the climb is brutally steep — with one particular corner that reaches nearly 30% at its steepest — but the views throughout the climb, and towards the top in particular, make it more than worth the effort.
So, head over to the Mt. William climb guide and if you’ve ridden it before, why not leave a comment with your impressions of the climb? These guides are only one rider’s perspective on things so it’s always great to hear from other people who have a history with these climbs.
Thanks for reading!
