Whilst not a challenging climb, this offers you the chance to visit the historical Cape Schank Lighthouse.  The views of Bass Straight from a lookout from the base of the climb are quite impressive.  This climb is at the very southern part of the Mornington Peninsula.  Heads up that you can experience extremely strong winds coming straight from Bass Straight.  These can make this climb challenging on a windy day.

Here is a link to the Strava segment here:

The climb starts from the car park at Cape Schank.
