That's a fantastic picture!

Is it Walled Mountain?

Geryon? (or the plateau just behind it)

although I wouldn't expect it to be that flat on top... haven't been there, myself

But if that's Gould and the Parthenon lining up, it would fit. Looks like Gould, with Byron in the background, but I'm not sure about the Parthenon.

Geryon is in the photo. The plateau behind it has a particular name …. which is...?

Just to be clear, I reckon it's your go, L_Cham. I was less precise than you and I don't have a lot of photos to choose from right now, anyhow.

Yep that'll do. It's not from the summit, but given that entire area falls under the wild dog tier name, I'll give it to you.

No guesses? I know there’s not a lot to go on in the picture. I’ve just come down from high ground in front to the left of the picture and am about to head up and over another mountain to join the dots...

Kinda reminds me of the back of Thark Ridge, which would you put you on the track to Mt connection?

It looks a lot (get it?) like a photo I took from (near) The Notch.

Both are close, but not the answer! This spot is just off the track, but is at the top of a named peak.
