Jolly close, Eggs, but we were enjoying the sunset from a summit (not Clumner).

Pretty sure the slope on the left is King Davids peak.
So maybe Mersey Crag?

Not the Guardians.
The trick is to realise this photo is the opposite of Tortoise's
Line up where she was and you will get a sighting point which can be used in her photo to directly zero in on my mountain.

My peak is between Olympus and the Guardians.
Remembering that she was on Mersey Crag, the sighting point is the shoulder of King Davids Peak

Not Gould. There are 2 other peaks in the gap on Tortoises photo and only 1 lines up with KD edge.

Yes you certainly gave us all enough clues..

I nearly guessed Cuvier instead of Guardians but just didn't remember that ridge coming off the side.

I am out all day tomorrow so hopefully this one will go nice and quick.. Where was this brilliant campsite I was at last weekend?

I remember wandering over those rocks Mark, some years ago now. I'd say you are at the Labyrinth.

And you would be correct devoswitch, on the summit of Hartz Peak.
I was starting to think this view was too obscured, with other clues behind the cloud.

Ah nice. I’ve been looking at it for a while and it’s been puzzling me as though I should know it.
