Before trying to plan the climb, think about planning the walk in :-)
It's south western tasmania, afterall. Although, this year we had 4 good days of weather in a row before (and after) it crapped itself with 100+km/h winds, and that was only at 1000m. These windows of fine weather may get longer as more climate change occurs.
Also, someone died falling 150m off one of the ridges earlier this year, but she was walking. It still shows that you need to be very careful, you may well be using one of those ridges to descend.
