It's a crime an' a shock to have no guesses so far.

Same side of the road, but heading for something else. There is a very cryptic clue in my previous comment.

I wondered about somewhere in the vicinity of Lightning Plains, but couldn't find any crimes being committed around there. :?

It seems that quite a few features around that area have names relating to that conflict. Mt Alma?

Ah, someone who can work out how my mind works. Yes, on my rather circuitous route over Alma. Nice little thing that, and wonderful views of Gell and the Cheyne Range.

And who knows Crimean War history. :( I do well if I can get a handful of David Astle cryptic clues out. Bet you can get them all! Thanks for the tip on Alma. I might explore it one day.

Thanks NNW. Nice clue. Hope you were wearing your balaclava. I'm afraid DA is mostly a mystery to me. Someone else please post, I'm at work and have no pics I haven't used before.

A mountain on the 'to do' list.
This one was also the list, but proved to be rather underwhelming. What summit is this taken from?
