What an amazing experience. I loved every second of this climb up and down. I don't particularly agree with the level 5 rating. Definitely a 4.

Mount Tibrogargan Summit (Glass House Mountains)

I totally overestimated myself and underestimated all advice about this climb. I ignored all advice and 1. climbed alone, 2. climbed in the rain, 3. climbed outside of my comfort zone. I was meant to climb with a beginner group but when I got there they had cancelled. I followed a well set out path to what they call Chicken Rock and this is where my buddy tapped out. There is no shame in stopping here believe me. Up I went. Thankfully 2 experienced climbers from our group found me and coached me up and down. I wanted that pic from the top and the bragging rights back at the bottom. Personally I found it terrifying. I rarely maintained 3 points of contact and had no idea where to put my feet or where to find a grip hold. This is extremely doable, but I can't stress enough that you should go with someone experienced. Coming down was easier but only because of the experienced men I was with. There were still a couple of places where I was terrified but to put it in perspective, one of my buddies walked most of the way down. I can't wait to do it again but this time I'll heed all advice and will not go without our group. The top IS AMAZING. Enjoy
Mount Larcom Walk (Central Queensland)
Aug, 2020
Hard

I have walked Mt Larcom over 30 times to date. I love it. A 2km walk warm up then from the bridge it's straight up. Well marked path with blue and yellow markers to follow. For first timers, allow the 4hrs to enjoy all that this gorgeous location has to offer. A very short scramble at the top where the views are extraordinary. Then down you go. If you have knee problems don't try it and the decent is punishing on them & your quads will scream with that good workout pain. Literally anyone can do this walk. Some just have to take it slower than others - it's not a race. Take at least 2ltrs of water each. In summer make sure you climb by 6am. It gets very hot. It's a busy place on the weekends. Everyone is friendly. You'll know you're alive both up and down on this one. Enjoy :)
