Any day climbing a mountain is a good day. First time on Barney so set off on South East Ridge. Head out with confidence following the well worn path – but of course I zigged when I should have zagged. After a good hour I was in the right path and had picked up a walking buddy. Michael from Beaudesert had not done Barney either so we were good to go. We made it up to Mt Barney (East) without incidence.
