Did the walk from Pioneer Graves Camping Area. Up to Mathieson's lookout, the track is clear and easy to follow. There's a view at the lookout, but it's obstructed by trees and branches. Keep following the track for a bit past the lookout and you'll get some better open views of Mitchell and Cordeaux. There's a section beyond this in which some navigational care is required:
1) There's a narrow gap between a large rock and a tree. Go through the gap, not around.
2) Soon after you'll come across a bunch of boulders. The track is visible beyond, so go over the boulders. If you try navigating a patch which looks like the track around the boulders, it'll send you steeply off the track and down into the bush between Mathieson and Mitchell.
Afterwards you'll be generally alright up to a large rockwall. If you find it, you are going the right way. Go up and around, and just follow the ridgeline the rest of the way till you pass an orange arrow indicating the path direction. Everything beyond that point should be quite easy. There's some obstacles (from fallen trees mainly) which you'll either clamber over or navigate around, but otherwise you're in the clear.

Went up and down South-East ridge. Got lost twice, almost walked off a cliff. Good fun. The rock gardens are where you're most likely to get lost. The paths are hidden by small palms, so check behind them if you're not sure where to go. There's also small arrows in some places pointing you in the correct direction, I didn't notice them on the way up but they helped me at one point on the way back down. Pro-tip: If you're walking on leaves, you've gone off the footpad.
