The trip up Mt Schlee was a super-scenic tour past Elbow Lake, Elpoca and Tombstone. The ridge is a jagged series of ribs, so when ascending it is difficult to know where the summit is. We ended up ascending too far to the left and when we reached the ridge, we found our route to the summit blocked by a wall of rock, maybe about 100m from the true summit. After descending from the ridge we called it a day. It would have been a pretty significant elevation loss and regain to get to the summit and by that time the weather was deteriorating.
