Climbers back on Mt Warning

SINCE being re opened several weeks ago, the climb to the top of Mt Warning has been more popular than ever.

After big money was spent fixing the walking track after storm damage rendered it bruised and broken.

Tweed Heads hiker Stephanie Lizzio loves the outdoors and in particular the bushwalking the Tweed offers, she was up at 2am to start the climb in the dark.

"It is the first time I have done Mt Warning actually, I had been told by friends it is a good climb so I had to do it," Miss Lizzio said.

Providing us with a great image she took on Sunday October 13 from the summit, Miss Lizzio said the climb was challenging but not beyond anyone, the dozens of people enjoying the view from the top at sunrise testament to that.

"It took a friend and I about 1 hour and 45 minutes, the view is pretty breathtaking, there were lots of people enjoying it as the sun came up," Miss Lizzio said.

Going down the mountain is actually harder than the climb according to Miss Lizzio.

" Going up is a good work out, but coming down gets a little painful on your legs as you are breaking the whole way down holding yourself back from an uncontrollable run," Miss Lizzio said.

Keen Climbers can get on the Tweed Shire Council Website to check if the mountain is open for walking.
