Thanks, L. That's the only one I haven't been up yet. Gotta fix that.

That's gotta be Lake Rosanne? ...with that weird boulder with the cleft that's almost a cave.

PS. Which means you'd be near the top of Lucifer Ridge, below the Crags of Andromeda... and probably close to the largest jack-jumper nest I've ever seen (I'm getting the heebie geebies just thinking about it).

Yes, that's right (although I don't recall the jumpers there).

That was only 24 min. If I ever get this again I'll try a close-up of scrub in the fog. You guys are pretty dang good though.

12 minutes! That's half the time of the last quick correct guess.

All yours John!

Thanks Nik, It helped that I've been there. Staying with the lake theme, this one probably won't take long either.

Closer still, but no (I did visit that as well).
Probably doesn't help that it's raining and really clagged out.

That's it Dan. We'd retreated from attempted circuit via K Col and Tarn Shelf due to a howling gale and horizontal rain. Much less exposed down here.

Ok, Ok, looking at Wentworth Hills from D'Arcys Bluff, (although I think it's all the Wentworth Hills).
