Hard work in hot and steamy morning. But worth it

Some confusion that I wanted to clear up due to the fact that people are talking about 2 mountains at once. Bally mountain is the interesting one with plenty of exposure to get your heart pumping and great views of ocean and Gold Coast. Mount Gannon has no exposure or views, it is completely disappointing and only useful for fitness training. The entire western side is 90% firetrail aka BORING. From right side of loop to summit. Total time 4.5 hours.The big intimidating private property signs were mildly interesting with comfy rungs to climb straight over. However not enough no dogs signs, these need to be pitched in every 5 meters.

Hardest track (by now), we have hiked in Australia. Very steep climb (and decent). Be ready that there are no signs about the trail on the route. The trail starts by regular off-road, and you won't see any interesting view one the first part of the road. But the second part (when the "round" goes back) became a tiny trail on the top of the mountain (on the edge of the cliff). Very dangerous, and time by time you really need to use both hands to climb vertically up (and down). I agreed that if you'd like to see spectacular and impressive views, it is better to go clockwise, and back.

Great view at the top but extremely steep up and down. I wasn't a fan of the scaling the cliffs. Difficult trail. One slip and you're in serious trouble.

I did it counter clockwisein the midday heat and found it bloody hard (at 66 I must be getting to old for solo hikes), it's poorly signed and the last few k's the track has obstructions placed by property owners.

Seem to be the odd one out here but I wasn’t a fan. Mt Gannon requires multiple km of bush bashing across private property, zero path at all, and the only reward is a marker- no clearing or view at all. Mt Bally was better, so my advice is DO THE LOOP, SKIP THE OUT AND BACK SECTION

Go clockwise it’s much nicer and the path is very easy to follow
