Mt Cougal (Springbrook National Park)
2 Aug, 2016
Hard
10km
5 hrs
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.

Breakfast and a sunrise at the top of this little but sweet hill ;)
Mount Beerwah Summit (Glass House Mountains)
Apr, 2016
Very Hard
2.9km return
3 hrs
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
