The route from Dove Lake and Kitchen Hut climbed on a variable weather. Nice walk and scramble.
Nice and steep towards the end. Done as a side track during our Overland Track trek.
Great weather, then it snowed!
As a side trip of the Overland Track
Dont Remember when, but have climbed it two or three times
A fun hike and scramble from Dove Lake.
Nice scramble in the snowy side of the mountain at the end of a very long day.
Initially up the well trodden path and then directly up the gully (after the poled track goes to climbers right) to the summit of Smithies Peak. Thereafter traverse across to the main summit on or below and left (east) of the ridge crest. A fun scramble with some exposure that avoids the Overland crowds. Peerless weather and great views.
I am not sure if this really classify as a mountain - but pretty it is that is for sure!!
Real easy climb, finding a day when it's sunny is hard, though. The climb is really a scramble up the rocks. Great views of the Tasmanian high country from the top.
