finally made it to the top today! with a party of 5 I was the slowest. We started around 10.30am and if the sun was any hotter the rock would have burnt my fingers. I made it up in about 2.5 h and came down the tourist route by 3.30pm. Enjoyable though scary enough for me.

Mt Mitchell (Main Range National Park)

a bit muddy for the first couple of Km, a hiking pole could help. Sweet vegetation variety and lovely views at the top. Not a large viewing platform though so smaller groups recommended. Also car parking is limited. Easy to moderate steepness (about 10km hike). Nice for backpack training if not too muddy. Oh and there are stingy plants around the trail! :)

Loved this even more than Mt Mitchell. Felt a bit more steep at a shorter distance but covered it without stops up & down (took about 1hr 35 mins without pics time). Fantastic views and rock formations. A bit muddy here & there. Great for backpack training when not wet. Can't wait to do Bare rock.
Toolona Creek Circuit (Lamington National Park)

fantastic hike through creeks and rain forest. Lots of fallen trees and branches due to recent storms. One large branch cracked and fell meters from us. Feels a bit draggy by the end of it but can think of much worse things to drag along to than canopies in the rain forest :) Took about 6.5 hours with stops (mostly due to the track condition) but it warranted some yummy wedges and pizza at the end
Mt Barney - East Peak - Up South-East - Down South (Mt Barney National Park)

Very Hard

Waited a few weeks for weather to stop raining this year. Finally took my chances with a small group of 4 hoping to beat my time (10h15min) from last year in a group of 12. I successfully increased my time to 11hrs! ;)

Rock was a little wet in places but not too bad. Didn't have a rope this time so going over the first large boulder was the first fun time of the hike - I was simultaneously pulled up by my hand and pushed up from my bum :) Went up sweeping the rock on my right hip and laughing my head off. Weather held up nicely. Path looked a lot more defined now than last year.

Interesting scenery. Loved the sugar cane! Hated the barb rusted wire but thankfully no-one touched it. Ground can be quite unstable so a walking pole is useful. Went to both peaks (about 6 hours) but I couldn't find the cave :(

Thought I'd follow another hiker's instructions and do East peak before the West one. From the saddle we went right through a bit of dry bush land. Soon we reached a well defined rock/greville path with loose soil. That pretty much followed all the way to the top. Not a pleasant hike up this way due to loose footing. Would be very messy if it rained.

From the top we went looking for another way down on the other side of the peak. Found a couple of ribbons at the top so we carried on on that path down which was considerably more stable. Soon there were no other markings but we continued to look for a path of least resistance. At times we went along the ridge rather than straight down due to grass bushes that were very good at tripping us over on steep terrain. But soon we found a dry rocky water trail and followed this pretty much all the way down with the occasional bush bash if it felt easier. Near the bottom we walked North towards the bike track through the grass. This got us down on the bike track North from where we started. We went right here until we saw the cable poles where we turned right again for another 2km walk to the start of the walk (end of Eaton rd). This descent was a lot nicer than the other would've been although longer. Took us about 4h with about 1 h or more total stops.

Wish I started with the West peak which apparently it's easier to ascend and wouldn't have turned off the group so much. However if you know what you're in for, then hiking the two peaks should not be a problem.

Finally managed to reach the top of Mt Beerwah even though on the summit route. Weather cleared out by midday so we went for it. The slabs are quite slippery in places and difficult at the very bottom of the cliff face. I still find it safer than Tibrogargan
