Was the gate open?

Yeah it was. There is only the one gate at the bottom of Caseys Road, almost immediately after turning off Esperance River Road.
That looks like a pad.

Hey all, thanks for the info on this one, only thing I would add to this is to go through the point marked on the image below (judging off the satellite and what I saw in person this seemed to be a bit easier). Hopefully my GPX track works too.

We had a great day out, really sunny day, the bush and the peak were really cool. Took 7 hours for us, we weren't in any rush. Thanks to everyone here for making this one happen, hopefully we can keep this one well taped. Safe bushwalking all.

Thanks for sharing. I should mentioned earlier that there is a pad up from the plateau that is a bit further north than the route you have highlighted and leads almost all the way up. Probably wouldn't make a huge difference though as the scrub band is small and pretty easy to negotiate.
