Ah! Heading up Solomans looking down to Mount Moriah. Just before scooting around the cliff line?

Heading back towards the unofficial Dombrovskis Tarns, probably from Artillery Knob, looking at Cradle.

Hmm. Thought I'd have 3 bites by now. While not that many people visit the peak we're descending from, the area below with the maze of lakes is very popular.

That's probably true. Even less have the foresight - or skill- to visit the middle one.

So with those clues, it's gotta be Geryon? (North)

I haven't climbed any of the Geryon high points.

Yepperrr! I can highly recommend the north and the south. :D I wouldn't have been able to do it on my own, but a couple of strategically-placed mountain leapers and a hand line or two, and it was fantastic!!

Hint 1: We are crossing a named watercourse, close to where it joins up with another named watercourse.
