I think you're looking at Bimberi, Murray, Morgan etc, so i would have said Gingera, although your clue suggests otherwise? Depends on how "close" to the summit you mean - it is within shouting distance of the road I suppose?

Oops, I didn't mean that you were correct. Just that the bulldozer went within shouting distance to the summit.

The where-is-it in my photo has not been identified here yet.

Just to clarify. Are you asking us to guess where you are standing or guess what you are looking at?

Are you on Orroral Ridge? Seems like a lot of snow for that elevation... Maybe another clue to help the game progress.

Most of the summits in that area get snow in winter.

It cant be anything in or around Scabby NR because firetrails aren't allowed.

Is it Mt Murray?

Its not Mt Murray.

Just because it isn't allowed, wont stop a fire manager telling a bulldozer driver to do something stupid. Check the legislation in the ACT - the emergencies act or whatever its called these days can override conservation acts.
