Ascent Trip Report

15km / 9.6 mile round-trip hike to the tallest mountain in Queensland Australia!

There is a marker for every kilometer between 1-7. Some we missed on the way up. And they are in the rainforest

The last half km starts at a helicopter landing pad and is moutly a rock field.

It took us about 7.5 hours total.
Surprisingly steep.

Just got off the liveaboard and 3 days of scuba diving the day before.

Hiked with James Hawthorne, Adam Drew and Christine Lan (didn't summit).
