a very lengthy hike but well worth it in the end. It takes a little more than 6 hours to complete because of photographs and resting. We started at 8am and finished around 4pm. The walk down after reaching the peak is pretty hard on the joints.

Beautiful view from summit. Must go to the towers at the top as view is 100% more spectacular than toilet/ridge point. Took us 7 hrs return w/ ½ hr spent at top and multiple stops taken. Would recommend :)

What an awesome walk - one of our highlights - make sure you go early - we hit the track at 7am (mid April) so saw the sun rising as we walked - it had snowed the night before so the last third of the walk was on snow - took 2 hours to walk up - absolutely stunning from the top !! A real WOW moment ! - just make sure you are prepared for weather conditions - thermals gloves jacket and beanie and good running shoes food and water a must as the weather can change.

Good calf burner from the get go but worth it for the views from the top. Took us 2hr up at a steady pace - but don’t go in the midday heat. Car park gets busy and you have to park on the roadside from midday. Take plenty of water - saw far too many fools suffering after having finished their 500ml bottle half way up!
