The standard club walk ascending the SE Ridge to the summit and then coming down to the Rum Jungle and then descending the Southern Ridge ( Peasants Ridge)

Amazing Hike!! Easy walk to begin with and then a proper scramble at the top. Scrambling for a lot of the part is open faced so you will need to have a good head for heights. Descent is via Peasants which is easy the first bit involves sliding down rock slabs and then a straightforward descent. Take care not to get lost as most people do once they reach the rum jungle as from there , there are many routes to descent and quite confusing. The correct route down ascends for a bit and then descends.
