Close. Can someone please direct me to a good map of the Wild Dog peaks? I have the map that covers the Grose but not the one that covers the Megalong.

Jonjonsan, brilliant. I catalogued the pics when I got home and had no map. The pic was taken looking southish from above Warrigal Gap to the short tunnel on the right side that leads to the plateau. This is what you said. I will have to alter the pic names. All yours.

Thanks Lophophaps

Going by the names on your previous entries I think you have one or two other errors in your catalog as well ;-)

Reminds me of the flats below Gungartan Saddle.

This is south of Gungartan.

Both the distant peak and the water in the foreground are named on the 1:25K toppo.

About 100m SE of Rams Head North - I recall hiding my pack under a rock formation similar to this and then climbing for a nearby trig. Of course, I could have it entirely wrong....

That's it, Crollsurf. Just outside the safety fence at one of the lookouts - a poignant memorial.

Thanks Tyreless. That is a nice way to remember someone.

Not Bombo. A good 2+ hours drive further South. It's part of a walk that has part of it's name.
