Looking towards the Cole/Owen divide from the little cave on the back of a rock that I know by the name of Rumdoodle.

You cannot see the Cole/Owen divide in the photo but I could well be standing in the cave/overhang by the name of Rumdoodle. I'm sure you could name the valley ribuck

The photo was taken from a hollowed out overhang on your right-hand side as the valley opens up walking from Cooyoyo. You walk around the base of the rock a bit and then up a little ridge. Probably only 10 metres higher than the track itself

Don't know if it's cave ribucks talking about. I'd be interested as well

Firstly, fat boy, you should claim the prize because my guess was wrong but you recognised the spot. I assumed the photo was taken from the cave on the back of Rumdoodle, a little monolith at the northern end of Monolith Valley. Here's a photo of the front of Rumdoodle, however I can't find a photo of the cave on the back. It's just a small cave with an uneven floor, not suitable for sleeping in.

As for your photo, crollsurf, it's a lovely photo, nicely framed. The valley is Monolith Valley, and you are looking across to the Seven Gods Pinnacles. Mt Cole is on the left. From your description, I'm assuming you were above the Nibelung Pass chains, but not far from them. This puts your cave on the side of Mt Mooryan, and I'll look out for it next time I'm in the area.

Couldn't have described it better myself ribuck so your go. Pretty sure fat boy doesn't want to cut your grass plus he didn't actually say where it was anyway.

I wouldn't call the rock an outlier but it is nestled next to one of the walls of Mt Mooryan

I'm going to take a WAG that it is still in the Budawangs somewhere - climbing The Castle?

You're correct, johnw, it's still in the Budawangs somewhere. But not The Castle.

Keep walking, it's not Watsons Pass. Here's another clue: this next photo was taken from the same spot.

Cool. I've not been to either spot yet (although I once failed to find 100 man cave). I hope to rectify that over Easter.

I dont have access to photos just now so anyone can jump in.

Looking toward Mt Tate?

I am having trouble working out where you were when you took it though. Maybe around Twynam creek?

Thanks Jonnosan.

From this weekend and about 10 mins before the temp dropped and the wind was bringing in rain sideways. Brrrrr. NSW.
