Yes, we're in the WoJ. Now to narrow it down.

ps: While there is a track to the summit, I'm not on it. Not even near it.

Are you somewhere below the high/summit end of Mt Jerusalem?

OK - maybe the Temple?
There is a light coloured scar on the eastern side. I have ascended the Temple from that side - no track.

I am below Jerusalem, but not on it. Climbing something else. This rock is visible, but not particularly noticeable from Jerry, while its immediate surrounds are a major landmark.

That's it - climbing the Temple from the east, up past that big sandstone scar. Which is a surprisingly complex section of ground and even has a small coal seam running through it.

The Watcher is correct - the ridge coming in on the left comes off Mt Field West

Kewl. The Ben Lomond NP is very underrated in my opinion. I reckon the scoparia would be looking derlicious up there at the moment :) next..

Manfred? I hate trying to work out angles on these things. Frenchmans at the back, Pyramid (I think) lining up with the Tyndal Range

Given how good I am at this it could even be the NZ Alps.

Hahaha oh come on you go alright! Even Eggs has the occasional blunder. I suspect you are on the no ey with the location, I just think that could be Jukes in the distance.

Definitely Jukes just to the right of Pyramid - though a better resolution picture would make it more obvious.
Probably Raglan Range on its left. [With Darwin/Sorrell further back]

I don't believe in certainty. It's too restrictive.

OK, how about this one:

Pine Knob it is. More people should get out there, it's a really gorgeous little ridge.

Good one NNW.
I wonder if I will ever get back to the Frenchman.
Guess we should have a new post.
