Promontory Lake, Mt Scorpio etc from Mt Canopus?

That's all correct Graham. We were on Mt Canopus and that is Promontory Lake beside Carina Peak and beyond the lake is Mt Scorpio.

To the left of the photo is the Sculptor and beyond that is Mount Aldebaran I think.

Brian's not working well right now, but could you be on Bobs?

It was cloudy so I am not sure if this is possible but my second guess is Lucifer Ridge.

The Gables and Lucifer Ridge are roughly in the right direction but this is from further away than either of them.

Wrong range now. You were closer, and in the right range with your second guess.

Canopus again? Or maybe Aldebaran?

For a fourth guess I reckon you must be on Scorpio.

Nearly covered them all. One more step away. A named mountain, not an Abel.

Fifth guess. It must be the Phoenix.

Or Carina. Or Centaurus Ridge. Or the Sculptor . . .

This is a lot of bull!!!! A step further away than Aldebaran or Scorpio.

Of course it is. Don't you have a small feeling of guilt jumping in after all the hard work was done by Beardless and NNW? I have in the past. But don't worry, you'll get over it in a minute.
I took that photo on Sunday last week. We had six days of almost perfect weather - just a heavy shower on the morning we left Lake Oberon and some drizzly conditions walking across the plains on New Years Day, which was welcome after the heat.

Nope, no guilt... quick game's a good game. And NNW wont give me too much of a hard time about it :-) I'll make the next one easy however....

Sounds like you had perfect conditions for a fantastic trip Graham.

They're never easy for me - Weld? All I'm sure of is that you're looking at the WArthurs.

I think you still have a pretty good strike rate.

Yes it's the WA's but not Weld. It's closer to the artys from where I am.

Long way away (quite apart from the fact I was going up).

We did. A bit slow with my brother-in-law nursing a troublesome knee but warm enough to enjoy waiting. Also a bit crowded with 15 people camping at each site on the range as shown by this picture at High Moor.

are you looking down on the clearing between the Hippogriff and The Chimera?

No, I'm in an area much more frequently visited.

Officially, what I am on no longer exists. And it would fit in nicely with the "colour" theme we used a while back.
