Another trip in to the Glass House mountains. We were here on our last trip in 2014 but this one was officially closed due to rockfall so we hadn't gone far past the base. This time though, we made it to the summit and even stood on the rocks that appear from the distance as the face of the 'gorilla' 8)

Having experienced Beerwah yesterday, comfort zones were expanded :wink: so this was good fun and no bother today :D :lol: Couple of chimneys to climb and lots of slabs too, but again plenty of holds. Buzzing when we made it back down again :crazy: :D :lol:
