Mount Beerwah

Glass House Mountains

Best to do this walk early before the heat of the day. From the base it's a steep rock climb/scramble up that seems to go on forever. Once past this initial climb you reach the Organ Pipes. From here it's a moderate walk/scramble to the top. Views are amazing from the summit. Take your time coming down, use your feet and hands to control your descent as it's steep. Take water and some energy food. Approx 3hrs. Great if you like a challenge.

Awsome walk very scenic with a challengeing start. If you can get past the first 20m you can do the lot

This was my first ever attempt at Rock scrambling and it was absolutely incredible! There were plenty of different paths to take to get up so would recommend going with experienced people who can help make sure you take the best route suited for you as I found this helped me out a lot. I'm addicted and want to go back again!

Not an easy climb. Easier to climb up from the left of the obvious rockface at the bottom (end of path). Go when it’s busy and follow other climbers and ask questions or advice if you need to. Just when you think you are nearly there the rockface continues. Once you get the hang of it and realise the rocks are quite grippy it isn’t so bad. Take it slow and be careful. If you are unsure or unfit don’t do it.

I loved the limestone caves. View was great but I think Mt Ngungun is better.

Sliding back down was actually quite fun.

After a false start a few weeks earlier (chickened out at the slab) I finally conquered Mt Beerwah! My advice to anyone that is scared of heights, just start scrambling up the 'slab' and don't look back. Go with an experienced climber who can can help you with hand and feet holds and who knows which way is the safest way up and down. What a fantastic achievement it is when you make the summit - although, I really didn't feel like I'd conquered the mountain until I made it all the way down - ripped pants and all!hahahaa

An amazing climb. Lots of friendly people climbed that day who looked out for each other too.
My 13 year old daughter and I did it together. Awesome accomplishment for us.

I’m glad to have done this but won’t rush to do it again. Found it harder than Tibro, and that means harder than any other walk I’ve done. Views at the top are much better than Tibrogargan. Came down East face - good variety.
