Mount Tibrogargan Summit (Glass House Mountains)
17 Sep, 2011
Very Hard
2.7km return
2 hrs
If you do it in the afternoon, walk over to the east face and watch the shadow of Tibrogargan creep to the east. Pyscologically intimidating but worth the effort

Perhaps my favourite climb of all the Glasshouse Mountains. There is a bit of a track going left from the Saddle. The rockface you come to a few mins later is awesome. The easy way is to work yourself to the right for about 30 meteres until you find a path up. We went left and climbed up the rockface following steps / grooves in the rockface - more dangerous but also exhilerating. After that a nice ascent to the top. Great views all round.

Climbed from carpark to summit in 21 minutes to watch the sunset behind Beerwah and the moon rise over the sea 10 mins later. (We did go fast). Climbing down in torchlight with the full moon rising was a fantastic experience

A great walk, especially views of Mt Cooee in the afternoon. The track up to the eastface is challenging and loose underfoot but does take you about 2/5ths up the mountain.

To celebrate my son's 3rd birthday, we got up at 4am and drove up to watch the sunrise. Absolutely spectacular- the pick out of all the Glasshouse mountains to watch the sunrise from. The view at sunset is also worth watching
Mt Coochin (East and West Peaks) (Glass House Mountains)
16 May, 2011
Medium

The most northern of the Glasshouse mountains- beautiful views!! Kids can climb to the western peak but taking them to the eastern peak would be risky. A nice challenge climbing down to the saddle and up the other side from the west to east peaks and vise versa. Would be unlucky to meet anyone else on the walk.

This is ground zero of the Glasshouse mountains. A 360 degree view to all the other mountains. Stunning views. Well worth the effort.
Mt Tunbubudla East (Glass House Mountains)
16 Mar, 2011
Hard
5km return

Really hard from Saddle to Summit - no track, so you just have to push through. We pushed out looking towards the summit and going to the right 1st and then up. It's the loose stones underfoot that make it hard going. Next time, I'll keep going along the track past the saddle for about 30-50 metres and then turn up, looking for the hugh basalt rock sections which I'll climg up and around. It should be much firmer underfoot. The 4th highest of all the Glasshouse Mountains and rarely climbed by anyone, so an achievement to do

A very pleasant walk. Viewing the sunset on Tibrogargan from the Jack Ferris Lookout was a real treat. A good hike to bring the kids along
