“I got there at 5.15am and around 11 cars were already there when I got there,” she said.

“The temperature was only 5 degrees at the carpark so I thought about half way up that it wasn't cold enough for snow, so I was really happy once I got around the back.

“Really (it was) just a sprinkling of snow - up to about 1 cm in a few places.”

Ms Jones said the highlight of the climb was the appearance of quokkas.

“The quokka was around for ages much to the delight of us all,” she said.
