I reckon ILUVSWTAS wins this round. The Chimera is kinda behind and to the side from here. This was in the little buttongrass patch in the saddle between The Chimera and The Hippogriff.

So THAT'S what it looks like without a blizzard!

Ok, well I have heard of a sloping slab, but hey, there are a lotta sloping slabs in Tassie. Thought I was seeing Geryons everywhere.
And thanks for popping that helpful name into my acrophobic head, ya big goose!
Where couldn't I see the said slab from?

It doesn't look that bad in that shot. Not as steep as the Bonds Craig summit rock, anyway. Of course, these things never do look that bad in photos (except Fedders).

I went diving for my protractor, but can't find it. Just remembered - I did manage a steeper ramp (about 60 degrees) at the height of my terror. But I was being hoiked by Icefest for most of that... Don't know anyone with long enough arms for Geryon South.
Edit: But I will be wearing my approach shoes - the ones I bought for attempting Fedders. They do stick a bit better to rock. :)

Correct!
That unnamed tarn is a gorgeous place to spend the night, indeed.

There's a better spot on the minor moraine on the southern side of the tarn.
