I really enjoyed this and did it within 3 hours. Head for Australia lake (as it's shaped) and follow the path up. It gets quite loose near the top. Reach the style on the wall but don't go over it. Instead turn left and follow the wall, always stay this side of the wall. Where the path hits the final ascent it is not terribly clear but just look for where the rocks are discoloured slightly from other users and follow them. You will need to scramble/climb this last section but I wouldn't call it dangerous. Say hello to Adam and Eve at the top!
