This is a fantastic mountain with amazing views. The beginning of the walk takes you deep into the gully, leaving you with a steep climb uphill to the summit. Although it tests fitness levels, there is a very clear path to the top making things a little easier! It’s a very popular destination and we were actually stuck in a traffic jam when trying to leave – go early to avoid the crowds.
