That looks like Mt Weld. Are you on Schnells Ridge?

Is that Heemskirk/Agnew in the back? Can also see some gravel roads lower down.

What, I have to work that out as well? Some people are never satisfied!

From that side, Dundas, Read, maybe even Murchy. Looks too clear a foreground to be Black. I never had much in the way of views either time I climbed Dundas and I think that might be too far south for that angle, so I'll start with Read.

I think that road on the ridge in the foreground leads to Read....

Foreground? The foreground has to be part of the mountain before you get to Read.
But you are right about the road - I drove along it once a long time ago.

Well done Tortoise - you should go next.
I have exactly the same view in a shot from the top of Murchison.
I would like to traverse that ridgeline in the foreground one day - down to Lake Sandra.

Thanks Eggs & Last. Been on my list for a long time, but I still haven't got there.
Next one - which lake did I recently visit that hadn't been on my radar?

Not many people will know the (named) lake, but the two Abels in view are well known, and I reckon it can be narrowed down from there. We went over a very easy Abel to get to the rarely visited lake. Hundreds of people would have driven past within 2 kms of the lake that day, but we didn't see anyone after the first 20 minutes or so of our walk.

From your description/clue Tortoise you'd have to be somewhere over the back on Mt Campbell, so perhaps above Carruthers?

Still trying to get there - had several trips rescheduled. Hoping for weather like that!

A WAG would say Frenchmans Cap - but a closer look at the background suggests Agamemnon
