Thanks Geevesy. I should have got that first up. I've been on both and it didn't quite look right for Quamby.

A quartzite cairn in dolerite country? Interesting. Something tells me I should know this. Is that Picton in the back?

No, not Picton at the back, at least I don't think so. Wouldn't think you can see it from here, about 40km distant with other things in the way. Pretty sure you would have been here NNW. The views in other directions are more obvious.

Thanks johnw, it's definitely a walk worth doing.
So is this one - where was I on this cloudless day?

This photo reminds me of Mt Weld? However I’ve not yet been there.

The amount of logging below suggests you're overlooking somewhere like the Weld, Picton or Florentine Valleys . . . You wouldn't be on the side of Florentine, would you?

This isn't Florentine peak. Weld was closer.

Well, that looks like Little Hugel on the bottom right, with Othrys and the southern end of Olympus in the middle distance, which one assumes would put you on the way out to Hugel.

Either everyone's gone walking or this is much harder than I thought it would be. Maybe I should replace it with an IOU and pass the game on to whoever wants to go next.

Wow, there's life up there now... no wonder I couldn't place it, there wasn't any vegetation up there when I was last there.

What a ripping photo!

I'm guessing that's the view I didn't get in the fog from out on Geeves Bluff....
