This was my first mountain climb ever and I have never done rock scrambling in my 18 year life. The first part of the climb freaked me the **** out, there were numerous points where I felt like I had nothing stable to hold on to but my mate who worked on the Glasshouse Mountain rescue teams helped me get past these points. Didn't help that he frequently pointed out places where people had suffered injuries along the way haha. After the first 15 minutes or so the climb tapers off and the view at the top is amazing. Like someone else said, I surprisingly found coming down the mountain far easier as you can just shuffle down on your backside. Would 100% recommend the climb, however be very careful at the beginning because even a small slip can result in a substantial fall down the volcanic rock!
