"Meetup group Happy Hikers decided to honour the ANZACs with a sunrise hike up Mt Maroon. We started climbing about 2.30 am. Views were restricted due to foggy clouds, but still a great time with wonderful people. Spent a fair bit of time exploring around the summit." - donizen, Apr 25, 2018
"Meetup group Happy Hikers scaled the usual route. Spent a lot of time at the top and also exploring the other peaks. 19 of us celebrated birthday of one of us, then followed with lunch at the Rathdowney pub." - donizen, Apr 8, 2017
"Starting climbing on my own at 2 am. Co-hikers started at 1 am so joined them on the top. Even managed to have two naps during the climb and descent. Nine of us did the climb for the sunrise, but clouds got in the way. Cleared quite quickly after we started going down." - donizen, Dec 17, 2016
"A group of us climbed in the dark to watch the Orionid meteor showers. Unfortunately, cloudy weather thwarted that. We slept on the mountain and came back down at fight light on the Saturday." - donizen, Oct 21, 2016
"Led a Meetup group of 9 in torrential rain. Lots of cascades and waterfalls in places that were all dry in previous climbs. Left carpark at 7.45 am and back just on midday. Due to heavy rain, we did not stay at the top for long." - donizen, Jun 4, 2016
