About Mt Toolbrunup, Stirling Range NP
Toolbrunup Peak towers above the other western peaks and offers uninterrupted views in all directions but can only be reached if you are fit and agile and prepared to scramble up some steep rock sections.
The trail leaves the carpark and leads through woodland, mostly following the bank of a creek and becoming progressively steeper. Beyond the woodland it rises steeply over large boulders, loose rocks and steep scree to a saddle near the top of the south-west buttress.
From here it’s a short, steep scramble to the top. During spring, those who reach the upper slopes will be rewarded with beautiful mountain bells and southern cross flowers.

Very awesome at the top - and like others say - it's rewarding. It's a totally different type of walk to Bluff Knoll, so I can't compare them. Def want your hiking boots for this one though!

The treck starts in beautiful woodland and then gradually turns more and more gravelly. About 2 thirds up is a whole section which just consists of big rock plates; and from there it's quite steep and narrow till the top.
We find Toolbrunup much more fun than Bluff Knoll but it is also harder because of the scramble towards the top - You probably shouldn't be too worried about heights if you make your way up there and, if these things make you overly nervous, I guess it's worth noting that there isn't too much room at the top with quite steep drops everywhere. The all round views are quite amazing.
