Ascent Trip ReportThe trail up the rainforest-clad slopes of Mount Agnew began with an unmarked, degraded 4WD track before more or less becoming a long string of simple tape track markers. The route became progressively steeper, heading directly up the mountainside and requiring the use of all four limbs to clamber up thick mossy roots and hang onto low-hanging branches. This proved to be quite enjoyable despite the lack of views, and little thought was needed to navigate thanks to the numerous markers. After a glimpse of the top, we had a final climb before emerging on the summit heathland, which was adorned by white granite boulders. The sea lay at out feet, Ocean Beach arcing into the distance, while to the north heath-covered granite hills stretched out invitingly. Fulfilled, we made the descent in straightforward fashion.
