Great Pine Tier high point?

Postby Tortoise » Mon 20 May, 2019 6:06 pm

I'm confused re the high point of Great Pine Tier on the HWC Peak Baggers' list. Unless my brain is less functional than I think, the high point on the PBs' list is roughly north of a spot between Lk Solveig and Lake Sonja, at 1310 m elevation. But I would have thought the high point is a couple of kms east of Mt Moriah, at >1330 m. That high point looks like it should still be a part of GPTier. Can anyone cast light on this? Thanks.

You're right about where the PBL high point is. I think the more westerly spot is considered to be part of Jerusalem rather than the tier.

Thanks for that, nnw. I wondered about that, but couldn't make it part of Mt Jerusalem, given the southern-ish line of the Tier. Maybe it's a bit of poetic licence. Sounds like it's a lovely area to explore anyway. :)
