The third highest peak in Western Australia and the highest in the Stirling Ranges located 4.5hrs South East of Perth. The range is very prominent rising high above the predominately flat terrain. The walk itself is very well marked and attracts a lot of tourists of varying ages and fitness levels. Most people of reasonable fitness can climb it in under 2hrs with lots of time to rest and enjoy the view. At the top you are greeted with a panoramic view of the National Park, Stirling Ranges and beyond.

Amazing even when it’s sleeting!

Got there in the morning to discover it completely engulfed in cloud but persevered anyway. Took me 1hr to walk to the top at a brisk pace and saw many people along the way. It has a similar level of intensity to Mt Warning except without the scramble component. Sat up the top for a couple of hours waiting for the cloud to clear which it eventually did and I'm glad I waited because the views are excellent, I can see why it's known as the best mountain climb in WA!
