Well, given that I'm only right 1% of the time if that, it seemed best to start with something that had the highest likelihood of not being totally, utterly and completely wrong.

It looks like a scrubby little beast, not worth the effort of climbing.

Haha ok fair enough.

I believe you can get pretty close from the road/tracks to the west from Teepookana. But yeh it'd be botanical *&%$#! from there.

Wrong option, and I've already given a clue.

Doesn't look like the rivulet to me. If you can keep up with changes in botanical taxonomy, you can keep up with older changes in geographical nomenclature.
Yes, I'm being petty on this one. What is the name of what I am looking at and, more importantly, from where am I looking?

Oh come on, it's obvious enough. I might just go and sulk for a bit if you're all going to be like that.

Mother Cummings Peak [I see they swapped the names?] from [not having been there its hard to tell how far away this shot is] perhaps the ridge line between the Head and the Peak? About 400m along at around 1170m high?

Thank you. The names haven't been so much swapped as returned to older forms. The Abel is now Cummings Head, which is apparently the oldest recorded colonial name.
Close enough; it would be somewhere around half a km at the most (and a lot of scrub-dodging) south. It's a neat ridgeline with some lovely views and rockpiles.

Mt Maconochie seems to fit the clues. Were you standing on it or are you looking at it?
