It looks a bit like the lower part of Packer Spur, leading up to those damn awkward bluffs, but . . .

It is indeed looking up at Packers Spur from a campsite near Abel Creek.

No. Although you're not as far away as you could be.

Going in the wrong direction. Both of you. (Kind of like a lot of my walking.)

Going the wrong way again.
I thought this one would be relatively easy. So far eggs is the closest.

Tortoise has it with Cuvier. I think that's a little bit of the summit cairn on the left, or maybe just a minor cairn near the summit. Interesting how hard these can be with a different angle. The wider shot gives you so much of the southern reserve the location is obvious.

The rock says West Coast Range vehicle track. Just to try to narrow it down . . . maybe in the Tyndall area?

The rock may be a bit deceptive. Not the Tyndalls, but the right quadrant of the state.

Yes, that's definitely Paddys down there, from the climb up Black Bluff. I should have recognised it given how recently I revisited it.

I coulda waved to you! Might've bumped into you at Remus as well, but the weather got the better of me.
Edit: Wait! That would've been when you were there. Wind, rain, mist, bit of snow. :wink:

I think that happened a couple of days later, when I was dodging tourists at Dove Lake.
