Indeed it is, I was hoping the massive pack was a deception. I did this as a last minute daywalk on the way home from a multiday. Your go.

It's a nice little ramble up there. Fogged in when I hit the top, but slowly cleared. Although I seem to remember a few more cairns - like about 20 . . .

A lot of zoom...I think you are on the South Picton range, maybe Burgess or Anderson Bluff?
I can see the Franklands & Folded Range so you are looking north-westish...?

That'll do. I think it was Anderson. Though it may have been Burgess. Take it away, stu.

Nicely done Graham. It is Lake Nancy and we were indeed on our way to the abyss. Well worth the walk; a beautiful place.

Over to you.

I haven't seen you in the game for a while. Yes, it's looking at Byron from the beach at Lake Petrarch.

Yay! It lined up almost exactly with my pic taken from our camp in the saddle before Taurus.

Righto, where was I standing to get this shot? ( It's named on maps)
