The climb up started off reasonably difficulty and didn't get any easier!! There was a bit of a view at the first lookout (between the clouds). The bush was scenic which made up for the fact the track was very challenging. Climbing up the rocks and tree roots was hard but fun. There wasn't much of a view at the top due to low cloud. Climb took 1 hr 40 for Mum and I. Dad and Cameron were only 5 minutes behind. Caitlin took about 2 hrs 15, and the rest took 2 1/2 hours. We all decided to take the road down as the track would have been horrible to try and attempt to clamber/slide/trip/stumble/slip/fall down.
We were all proud of our achievement and enjoyed the hot pools to soak our muscles.=-)
