Frenchman's Cap Climbing Notes

Jameson Fegan from AUSTRALIA writes:

Parking off the A10 Lyell Highway in the car park for Frenchmans Cap.

Frenchmans Cap is a moderate to difficult hike depending on ones abilities.

Allow for a day or two, again depending on ones abilities and the weather, and it is best to hike with someone.

The weather can turn quickly on Tasmania's West Coast. Quality hiking gear is beneficial and a decent fitness level.
