Not Kimberleys, but you're very close.

I probably should have given it to Teak. It's another lookout without an official name, part of the Badgers Skyline track Bill Shepherd and the boys worked on. I don't quite remember exactly which bump it is, now. A great little walk. :)
So go for it, Teak, or someone else if he doesn't come back.

I think you may have done what I didn't have time to do, and got all the way down to the bottom of Quaile Falls.

You are correct and well worth the slippery scramble it was.

I must go back (with a bit more time before sunset). It's a lovely little walk.

Where were we racing the cloud up?

Didn't feel anything like it. Partly because it isn't.

Probably wrong but kind of reminds me of going up Cradle.
Not that I'd contemplate it in such icy looking conditions. How slippery was that?

Not as well known or anywhere near as frequently travelled, but that's the closest so far. You even have the first letter correct.

Not so bad going up. Going down was tricky. Was wishing for spikes but my cheap ones carked it on the previous trip and the flash new ones hadn't yet arrived.

On impulse I grabbed some cheap lightweight spikes as part of an order from the UK. Wouldn't normally need them up here unless I decide to do something like Kosci area in winter, or Tassie again. I'll probably take them to Alaska and Canada end of next month just in case, though it's more of a tourist trip with mrs.

OK, Mt Campbell seems too obvious and I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a steep boulder field like that.
This looks quite high up. I'll go further south and try Cathedral Mountain.

This is proving elusive. Assuming that means go north - Curate Bluff?

Mmm, I've looked through all the Abel Cs. I'd ruled it out as it was well into the Walls area - has to be Clumner Bluff?

Yep, climbing Clumner from Fish River Rd on a lovely cold morning.

Yay, finally! Went around the world to get there. Let's have a moderately frosty one:

Looks like the open section of the track from Trappers to George Howes.

There are marker poles in there - one old, some new. Is this one of the daywalk tracks around Cradle?

Getting colder. Your previous guess is relatively not that far away, in the same general area.

Been ages since I’ve been there (never in the snow) but is it between Lake Ball and Lake Adelaide?

No, I didn't walk that northern section of the Junction Lake track, but you're back in the general frame. There is a clue in the snow.
