The campsite is suitable for fit, experienced, and self-sufficient hikers. The ground is primarily dirt. The campsite has no facilities, so campers must be entirely self-sufficient To ensure a safe and comfortable stay, campers should bring a fuel stove, drinking water, extra food, rubbish bags, a first-aid kit, topographic map, compass, torch, warm clothing, wet weather gear, and a small trowel for burying waste. Additionally, a GPS and EPIRB (or PLB) are highly recommended. Mobile phone coverage is poor in this remote area, so it's essential to be prepared for limited connectivity.
To reach this remote bush camp site, you'll need to embark on a 5-hour walk from the Green Mountains day-use area via the Border Track to Mount Worendo, which stands at 1,140 meters.

Note that the Razorback ridge, a narrow and challenging section, requires good rock scrambling skills.
