I attempted the climb solo and found it not too difficult. Slightly easier than Mt Beerwah and the view up top was worth the climb. Got up in 45mins and down in 60 mins.

I thought people were exaggerating, turns out it is rather steep haha Starts off with a hike then turns into a climb. There is one tricky part where you have to climb a small vertical rise, however it looks a lot bigger on the way down trying to find your footing. That being said I found it to be easier on the way back down being that you can use your bum as an extra limb and have 5 points of contact. After that rise which is right near the start of the climb it becomes progressively easier until you reach the top. Once there continue walking to the other side of the summit to find an excellent viewing platform. Wasn't too physically draining but there is a fair bit of exposure to heights. Good practice for Mt Beerwah.

Great climb and one that you certainly can feel good about yourself once you get to the top. Chicken Rock at about halfway up is the point you'll reach where you make the decision to keep going or turn back. It is basically a 90 degree vertical climb using hand/foot holds approximately 25 - 30 meters in height.

Loose rock can be an issue underfoot if you do not watch where you are placing your feet so be sure to be mindful in that regard.

A great feather in the cap and looking forward to completing it again in the near future.

Felt happy to conquer this today after an aborted solo attempt a year ago. Hard at the start - still challenging as you go but gets somewhat easier. Views at the top aren’t as good as I was expecting. Much too exposed for my liking and the day after I went a climber fell 30 metres on this track and had to be lifted out by a helicopter.

terrifying, amazing and just wow! Will do again. Very hard but definitely worth it.

very hard

alenka on 7 Oct, 2017

The first bit is hardest but becomes progressively easy as you ascend, would not recommend it if you are not fit, involves lots of scrambling rather than hiking after the initial walk up to the point where the main ascent starts, challenge well worth in terms of physical although the view at the top whilst nice isn't a wow, still is a reward when u reach the top. Best done early morning, make sure to give warning to climbers below if you dislodge any rocks, do not attempt when it's wet/raining. As always, carry water.

Phew, what a rock....Mt. Tibogargan! For our little group of three fellas, first time. Looked abit daunting, especially to me, being more of the hiker. It was a great ascent, Plan, look footholds. Heaps of social, for chats, share experience. Even a kid of twelve, remarked up the top...Helmet, hydro(water pack) long pants....cool bro, gave me five, with him bare foot, shorts and t-shirt...That's my Aussie compatriots! Sat on ledge enjoying the views, blue skies, Sunny as! Trip down, could have been difficult, if not for abit of advice, then eyes on the job, one step at a time, boots and hands lodged...very interesting. Many groups, all up say 100 plus coming up. On my way down, dislodged, a rock about 25mm, yelled heaps loud, my son, 20 meters below swerved, and avoided, woman, ducked! I think the importance of having protection, and safety for all. As it says down the bottom, rocks will be dislodged, be mindful, and observant!
listen out! Everyone, were friendly, chatty amongst groups, doing a chosen goal. Great Mountain, good testy one. Will do again one day.
Have fun.

well worth the effort

Part hike, part free rock climb. Definitely had to push through fear of heights.

Summer Long on 16 Apr, 2017

Done the walk heaps of times. Always fun. Nice quick climb that will still challenge you.

Great morning, TIP: get there early as on the way was getting busy and bottleneck at chicken rock. Great views at the top well worth it.

DanF on 11 Mar, 2017

Great climb, i thoroughly enjoyed it! There were enough foot and hand holds to make the scramble fairly straight forward if you look up and plan ahead. Made the return trip in 1hr 15minutes (including 15 minutes at the top to take pictures) I ached the next day so would probably take it a little slower next time haha

This was a great climb/walk!

This is a favourite 'go to' walk from my house :)

Christian on 2017

Wouldn't class this as very hard but certainly isn't for the faint hearted! The first bit is hardest but the views are very much worth it. Spent way too long at the summit and ended up climbing down in the dark. Bring insect repellent!

Was quite an exciting climb, enjoyed the challenge.

AliT on 19 Nov, 2016

OMG how good is this mountain!!! a few moments where it is a little intimidating, and I definitely would not do it if you are not at least relatively fit... But wow... well worth it.

Brad on 18 Nov, 2016

Have completed this walk many times, and I can't agree with the Very Hard rating or the 3.5 hour estimated time.. But is a great walk for beginner rock scramblers!

CamronDixon on 27 Apr, 2016

Challenging climb. Found it quite rewarding reaching rhe summit

Bcuell on Apr, 2016

Harder than I thought it would be, but a good intro to climbing. Great views.
