Just climbed Frenchman’s Peak and definitely worth the climb. Weather was nice and warm, but I recommend bringing insect spray, fly’s were really bad. Excellent views all around, loved it and will definitely do it again

Make sure you climb all the way to the very top. It's a bit difficult at times, but well worth it for the views.

The wildflowers at the base are magnificent this time of the year. Posters at car park base spell out degree of difficulty well as a Grade 5. If safe do this climb as they don’t come more rewarding. The views all round are spectacular and...More
