First part of the track is a bit exhausting but when you are at the top of the mountain you will have a great view of the Cobb Valley. Beautiful lake but very cold water!

Rain, rain, rain but a beautiful walk. Gorgeous view from the ridge and lovely little lake tucked between the mountains.

Good track of five hours. You get at the top, beautiful view of the ridge (lakes, trout in lakes).
