Route/Trail notes

The walk starts from a large carpark with a fairly gentle ascent. The gradient gets gradually steeper until you reach the ridgeline. From here you get around 15 minutes of easy flat walking before it begins to get gradually steeper again eventually getting so steep you will need to climb a series of steel stairs and ladders to get up the near vertical rockface. At the top there is a lookout where you can get great views over to The Castle. You can also explore the summit a bit and check out views to the East where you can see all the way to the ocean. 


Nil cost unless camping

Was easier than I expected it to be, only took me around an hour up and an hour down. If I had to compare it to one I've done before I would probably say Mt Warning. The drive in is fine for 2wd cars - however if you have a low car I probably wouldn't be driving like a racing car driver as there are quite a few pot holes. The track is very well marked, would be hard to lose it (unlike the track up the Castle). The ladder/stair section is pretty cool - always hoped they would do something similar on Mt Lindesay in SEQ.
