Nice track and a little waterfall

Did this in reverse. I can see we took the harder way, quite a steep climb up the back end of the mountain. Fantastic views at the top. Take care with the weather as its known to be windy/cold up there.

Great Walk awesome views pity we didn't have time to do the full loop

be prepared for sudden changes in weather. even if it's hit and sunny when you start out be prepared for hail and snow at the top. we did it a few weeks back and there was a sudden change of weather about 20 minutes to the summit. the exposure to wind and snow is awful. I was sure I wouldn't make it...! obviously I did. 2.5 hrs down the mountain cold and wet is not fun. be prepared!

steep as hell and can be slippery, awesome views though

great track,

Great views! Steep climb initially and can be a bit muddy when wet but definitely worth the effort!

Great steep walk, but absolutely worth it

Pretty awesome considering its a relatively short hike. Went up during the snow and came down in the dark with a headtorch, Epic!
