A few weeks later, having ticked nearly all the other mountains off my list, I returned to Guthega and decided that Tate deserved another shot. This time the weather was absolutely perfect and, aside from an abundance of grasshoppers, I came across many other weird and wonderful creatures. This time I reached the ridge line and turned right, heading for the summit of Mt Tate. It was further away than it looked, but I greatly enjoyed the walk along the top of the ridge. The summit is rocky and, much to my surprise, home to two species of grasshopper! So, on attempt #2, Mt Tate was ticked off the list. A steep, but not overly long walk from Guthega. With great views of Jagungal and the main range (and plenty of grasshoppers to catch!) it was well worth the effort.
