Climbers warn against Mt Wellington cable car ‘theme park’

A Tasmanian group says it has rallied leading rock climbers from around the world to fight against a cable car on Hobart’s Mount Wellington.

Club member Stu Scott said world famous climbers including Sir Christian Bonington were taking up the fight against the development, which would include a visitors’ centre at the summit.
