Spectacular view. Trail gets busy so go early. Although most stop at the red chairs about 30mins into the hike.

Amazingly short hike for what the payout is. The scramble is quite short at the peak, 20 metres or so, but very exposed. This is a must do.

Agreed with the previous review. The view on the top is spectacular! Be prepared with the weather and no cell phone signals

The first 80% of the hike was quite easy. The last bit was quite steep and technical- a few spots were narrow and required you to carefully move using footholds and handholds. The trail also became less clearly marked near the top. Unfortunately it was cloudy and rainy when we went, which made it more slippery and muddy. The view at the top when the clouds broke momentarily was pretty!
