Ascent Trip Report

Climbed Bluff Knoll, starting at the carpark. The first part of the trail slowly climbs along a gorge, before turning sharply right and following the side of the mountain. The track then steeply ascends through a gap in the cliff face, giving great views of the surrounding Stirling Ranges. Eventually I reached the plateau at the top, where an easy walk around the back of the peak led to the very top at the edge of the cliff face, giving more great views. After 20 minutes or so at the top, the whole mountain became covered in cloud before rain started to fall, and after this I began to descent.
