Ok, more NSW. Few people go to this particular spot so just the general area will do.

Yes. Good start.

Can it be narrowed down a bit?

Complete stab in the dark, but is it Bylong Labyrinth (have wanted to check that out for a long time)?

Not Bylong Labyrinth. SSE from there. I'm standing on a hill that could have been named by a dyslexic Queen of the Vineyards.

Nice view but I can't imagine bumping into too many people on Alidade Hill.
Still in NSW and not too far away from Alidade Hill.

You're right. Camping on the eastern rise, above Derschkos Hut. Your go.

Not lockley Pylon Track. In fact I see Lockley in the photo, so further West from where you are thinking

I see it now, that will teach me to answer in a hurry :roll:. North of Carne Wall with that view I think puts you somewhere in the vicinity of Evans Lookout/Cliff Top track but this looks lower down. I can't specifically recall a view like this but there is at least one lookout spot along the Horse track.

Not Evans, further North.
Blue Mountains is one of the hardest Where-is-it spots, even when Mt Hay or Banks are in view, there are still a multitude of possibilities. Anyway, I probably should stop preaching.

I have only been in small parts of that area, but I have photos from Pulpit Rock which almost exactly line up with this view.
