I reckon Splendour Rock is just out of view to the top right, and that is in fact the Phyl Roots plaque on Bellbird Point

Yes, that's the spot. Not sure who Phyl Roots is - my guess is Wal Roots' wife (nee White), early SBW members, but I couldn't find much info. Maybe someone can give me some facts rather than my wild speculation.

Over to you jonnosan.

I dont know why that pic is showing upside down... if you click it, it will show right side up (for me at least).
And in case you are wondering, this is not a clue....

hmm seems like it's taking a ultra protracted time for anyone to guess, maybe my clue was too subtle...

Well, recollection of my one visit to it, supported by the clues - the trig on Megalong Head.

Thanks jonnosan, I like the plateau and hope it gets protected.
I'm currently OS, most photos with me won't qualify.
Anyone please jump in next.

Not many in the game ATM but I'll keep the ball rolling with another pic from NSW. Should be easy for anyone that loves the high country.

Good on you Crolly. The game has really slowed. Maybe everyone is off taking pics for future games.

The Sentinel is on the left. It looks like you are standing above the headwaters of Stzelecki creek?

Most certainly is the Sentinal and overlooking Stzelecki creek. One of my favourite places when the weather is good.
It's definately bushwalking season ATM so maybe most are out and about. I'd be out there too but I'm saving my holidays for a family trip to Europe.

One of my favourites as well. Especially camped in that nice little protected spot next to the creek.

Europe, nice.

Still in NSW. Name the peak to the left.

Thanks Croll! Rams head it is. Taken not too far from Cootapatamba hut. Looks like the thing is erupting.

All yours.

That's it, looking south, south of Burning Palms. One of those walks you're happy to do more than once.

You wouldn't want to! It's a lot higher than the last time I crossed it.
