Cradle Mountain Summit (Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park)

Hard
18km return
9 hrs
Summitted in winter conditions. The final ascent involved steep snow gullies rather than scrambling over boulders. Traction aides (microspikes or crampons) are a must at this time of year, and an ice axe would be wise for self arrest. Leaving your pack behind is poor advice in this kind of environment - a PLB, first aid kit or water/windproof layers are not much use to you back at the hut if you have an accident or conditions change quickly (as they easily can in this area).

Mt Cougal (Springbrook National Park)

Hard
10km

Solo trip up both peaks, 4.25 hours. Keep your wits about you between the 2 peaks - on the return I lost the track and only realised when I started dropping down into very steep terrain. 10 nervous minutes later of exploration backwards and forward and I happened upon the track again... phew. Also be alert for snakes - I chanced upon a red-bellied black snake in the cane/lantana section. Gaiters are a good idea for this track.
