It's actually marginally closer to Mersey Crag - almost bang in the middle of the two. You'll probably need LISTmap for this one.

Close enough, John, from that angle. Your turn.
It's actually 1376m just south of that, now unofficially Lake Thor Prospect. Lovely spot to sit and while away the afternoon. This is another view from there:

I called it something else but, as I can't remember exactly what, that will do.

Thanks Tortoise, I was torn between both of them but guesstimated the angle incorrectly. Looks nice, I haven't been there but have explored some of what is in view.

Better make it easy, getting ready to go away tomorrow:

Yep, complete with snowdrifts (not in the pic). So many lovely places. *Sigh*

Sure is NEish but not Ragged Jack or Victoria, NNW is closer.

Ben Nevis? Although there's this little voice in the background that keeps whispering someting about the Barrow ridgeline. I really need to get back up there and do a bit more exploration...

Wrong way, this place is quite a bit higher.

Which, I presume, means we're somewhere up on Ben Lomond. Too close to the edges to be Legges, and Stacks and its companions are too close to Tower Hill, so maybe Markham Heights?

Strictly speaking Stacks is closer to Ragged Jack than Tower Hill. I'll be offline shortly so you can have it, the photo was taken at the southern end of Stacks Bluff looking at the first of the four dolerite stacks.

Very generous of you, boggy.

I need to get more summit shots into my pending wai file. In the meantime, here's a pretty bit of water.

Bing-pot! Woohoo!

Unfortunately I seem to be having major problems accessing my photos and my camera seems to hate my new laptop, so I cannot supply a photo. Me thinks an I.T consultant may need to be consulted...

Anyone can go.
