Beautifully Positioned

The photo shows the route I took up Tooth Mountain from the carpark in The Pocket of Cumeengeera ( V75426 55335 B). I'm now convinced that simon3's Track 2225 makes much more sense, as it allows for a more gradual ascent, and takes advantage of a rising ridge which will enhance the views from an early stage. My Track 2647 involves a small variation from Onzy's Track 2089 in that I do not follow the Hendroff Gap at the head of the gully but engage in a small bit of scrambling.
simon3's Start Point was V76724 57296 A, making for a much less steep approach to the first mountain in the horseshoe (Tooth) and a much more gradual descent over Tooreenbaha. The distance measured for simon3's route is 17.8km as opposed to circa 12km for Onzy and me. The extra distance merely softens the rise and fall and is well worth while, in my opinion.
