Mt. Wells, along with Mt. MacDonald are located within Regional Parks and land managers are in the process of determining recreational use. Climbing has been going on here for over 50 years and will probably continue. Mt. Wells contains steep walls and roof climbs. Although it doesn't see the traffic that Fleming Beach gets, in the sunnier months this area does have a steady flow of climbers. The Secret Cliff is just outside the park boundary and the land manager is very concerned about liability. Please be repectful. Next to Fleming Beach, this area is probabluy the most visited climbing area in the Victoria area. The hike is almost no-existent, the rock is pretty bomber and there are grades for everybody.
Head north on Highway #1 until you hit West Shore Parkway, just before Goldstream Park. Turn left onto West Shore Parkway and then take an immediate right on Amy Rd. Follow this until you hit Humpback Rd at Ma Millers Pub. Take Humpback road for 2.7 km to a pull-out. The trail head is on the right (east) side of the road.
Besides telltale use, there is a small road sign right at the trails' beginning. Stay right, an old trails goes left and climbs a fixed rope (replaced 2006) , and you'll pass the Prisoner Wall, then up a rocky "gully" to arrive near the Toilet Wall. By moving left (facing the cliff) you'll spy Pancake Flake, an obvious landmark climb. This is a big south facing flake with a cleaned face located 5 meters to the left of a big roof.
