Clue time.. There's a named summit behind that pointy thing.

Looks an awful lot like the area north of Flame Peak. Were you returning from Innes High Rocky?

I haven't been to Innes High Rocky, but it's good to know that it's reasonably easy walking.

Different peak, different range, different side of the water(s).

I haven't been to Greystone either, but it is on the right side of the major wet bits.

*sigh*
II should have stuck with lakes. Although there is a named lake under the summit you can't quite see...

There's only so many that fit that bill. Will just have to go through them one at a time till we get there. Remote peak?

Now we're getting closer. This was a little earlier on the trip.

It doesn't help that I haven't walked in that area. And I don't know which way you walked. Coronation Peak from near Sceptre lake?

I started at the easier to access end. Not Coronation. This was before that.
I'm not near the lake, it's on the other side of that saddle, below the peak, which is also the other side of what you can see.

Ok, so I have similar photo, but didn't get to make notes... And I need to fix the time on my camera. :roll:
You're apparently south of Islet Lake & Koruna, still a way north of Tribulation Ridge and Coronation, on the Wilmot Range. Bit hard to narrow it down further.

Hey Torty, glad you caught up with this one. South of Koruna is all I wanted. The saddle in sight is the one above Islet Lake, and I''m cruisiing along the flats.

Thanks for choosing an easier location Tortoise. So you're on the Cradle massif (climbing Little Horn?) above Fred Smithies pinnacle.
Not sure if that's an official/correct name, anyway the one in the famous photo of him standing on it.

Yep, climbing Little Horn it is. (Not sure if the pinnacle is named or not.) Over to you, John.

Not West Coast. I didn't think it would be that hard, plenty have been here. Clue - there is a bit of zoom.

Really close, within 1 km but no. It is in view though.
