The Pleiades do not seem to be divided into peak names.
But I am thinking that might be Pokana with Centre Star behind.
That would put him on the northern most part of the Pleiades as it approaches the Pokana ridglines

It is indeed on the Pleiades, more towards the southern end but still around 2km north of the high point. It's a long and exhausting ridge to traverse in hot weather.

The peak behind is Bonds Craig, Centre Star would have little to no profile as it get's lost against The Denisons. I'll have to give it to doogs despite his atrociously vague guess!

Take out the word distinctive and replace with curse words and you are still right.

Is that the way you went down to the river? Surely Yop Yop couldn't have been much worse...

Haha no I think this is more near the DP area. The ridge we went down to get to the river was actually quite good. A little bit of scunge down near the river itself but generally ok going.

I can see Bonds and Reeds behind something on the Spires range which looks like False Dome and the Abel . . . which would probably put you on Diamond Peak?

That was generous. IHR looks very different from that side.

Next then; what from where? And, in contrast to Luvverboy, I'm going to be very picky as to the 'from where'.

That is not the shoot I meant to put up but what the hell . . . close enough. I think it's actually from the small tarn just above the Font, but my original rule doesn't apply when I can't even load the right image. :roll:
