Monolith Valley. Does that rock on the left have a name? It looks like an angry bird to me.

It is Monolith. Your go Tyreless
I don't know what the name of that rock is but it's distinctive for sure. Maybe someone else knows

Thanks Tyreless
More from NSW, this one might be harder though. I don't know if it has a name or not but I called it "The Hand of the Budawangs"

With minimal Budawangs experience I haven't a clue and google turned up nothing.
I asked my son as he's been doing some trips there but couldn't help either.
So let's just start somewhere - Are you in Monolith Valley?

I thought you might have been looking out from the western end of the chasm between mts Cole and Owen?

Only vaguely remember the no camping sign but I'm thinking it is just above that

Probably a couple of days' walk (or a long day's walk for some maybe) from there?

Yep. That'll do since I don't think that particular feature has a name. On the northern end of the ridge, looking south along the eastern edge of the third (I think?) knoll as you head south from the saddle above mawsons hut. Er, if that makes sense. Over to you either way :)

C'mon, I know some of you have been here.

OK, the name I'm looking for is not exclusive to this peak.

No. The only mountain I've climbed that shares the name is not in Victoria. But there are other things with this name, and some of them are very, very well known.

No. Didn't know there was another Mt Wellington. The other Mt Whatever I've climbed isn't in Tassie. It isn't even in a state.
