If you’re looking for a true-blue Queensland rock climbing experience, look no further than Mt Ngungun – a little mountain with a lot of character!
From short, atmospheric routes among the eucalypts to exposed, soaring columns reaching toward the sky, Mt Ngungun has a large variety of routes in a relatively small space. For decades, it has been the perfect introductory location for those who are entering the wonderful world of rock climbing. This mountain has a special place in many climber’s hearts.
Join the ranks and cut your teeth with the help of our fantastic Pinnacle guides. They’ll teach you everything you need to know for the session, from climbing skills to belaying techniques, as well as taking care of all the rigging and safety considerations. No experience needed, just turn up and climb!
This is a unique adventure in a unique location, one we think you’ll find quite hard to forget! If you get bitten by the climbing bug, take a look at our Adults Rock Climbing Course to take your climbing technique to the next level, or perhaps our Top Rope course to get your rope skills dialled.
Session Times and Location:
The activity runs for approximately 6 hours from 8am to 2:30pm (with some wiggle room for hiking thrown in). We’ll meet at the Mt Ngungun carpark, just past Glasshouse Mountains township, at 7:45am.
Our awesome guides are highly trained, fully accredited, and heaps of fun! They’ll teach you everything you need to know, as well as take care of the safety procedures and provide all the gear, including harness, helmet, climbing shoes and all other technical equipment.
What to bring:
Although your guide will provide all the safety gear, you’ll still need to bring a few bits and pieces, including:
Non-restrictive clothing. Check the weather forecast to get an idea of the conditions, but remember that the summit is exposed and weather can change quickly, so a light jacket or wind jacket can be handy
Enclosed footwear such as hiking boots or runners, sturdy enough to handle a rough trail
A backpack big enough to carry all your gear plus some of the required safety equipment (e.g. ropes)
2-3 litres of water, hat, insect repellent, sunscreen, sunglasses
Your own food and snacks, full of energy to keep you happy and psyched!
Can’t do a pull up? Don’t worry – climbing is more about technique than strength! That said, you will need a moderate amount of fitness to get to the summit of Mt Ngungun. The hike takes about 1 hour, and you’ll need to carry some gear such as ropes in your backpack.
