Looks like the cliffs on the southern end of Olympus. Possibly from Petrarch.

Yes - they are called the Seven Apostles. And this was from the Cuvier Valley track a bit south from Petrarch.

My shot from camp at the southern end of the lake has a virtually identical alignment of those rocks. Pretty similar conditions, too. But what a weird combination of mythologies.

No, but one can climb an Abel via this route, and St Vals is in clear sight from up top.

The point, however, is moot. I'm off for a bit, so whoever wants can bung up something to keep the game moving and we'll return to this one some time in the future.

Well it''s not on the OLT from what I can recall. If you climbed Barn Bluff then maybe reversed back around onto the track to Lake Rodway (which we are overlooking)?
If so, perhaps Artillery Knob is the named peak in view? If I have my angles and direction right it lines up with what I can validate against.

Thank you eggs. My estimate of your position was reasonably close then. Yet to visit Lake Rodway myself.

Not in the SW, different part of the state. I'm at a named water feature looking up in the general direction of an Abel.
Which reminds me, I need to buy something in tomorrow's shopping event.

Sure is Rex, experiencing the weird localised wild weather that happens up there.

I saw a larger one going up to Mt Roland so I'll say Mt Vandyke or Mt Claude?

Similar country on the Spilt Falls track, but I don't remember a rock like that.
