Got to the base of the South side of the mountain in August but did not climb - its a long storey. Will be returning to climb the North side via The Miner's Path which is more challenging and has spectacular views.

If you feel energetic this is one mountain that the whole family can attempt to climb. Even if you don't make it to the top, the views along the way are fabulous.
