I didn't think it would be so hard, with 2 very popular Abels (and possibly another one) in view. The descriptively named peak we were climbing isn't one.

Sorry, Rexy. Missed this - but not Beecroft. We were further away from the Abels in view.

Pretty sure that lower peak left of centre is Cripps, so maybe you're on Rocky Sugarloaf? I really have to get the finger out and do that.

Rocky SL it is. Just make sure you go up the nice open button grass lead, avoiding the throw-the-body-into-the-cutting-grass/bauera/tea tree, extract oneself, and repeat ad infinitum method. :roll:

I was thinking of doing a loop over via Pearse and then going down the lovely open buttongrass lead. Although, does it really count if you don't get stuck in the cutting grass and bauera for at least one stretch?

HHmmm, no more old zoom B&W on Fedders handy, so will have to try something else ...

From the sequence of shots it must be. That didn't last long.

I'd heard people do the loop. We were... unsuccessful. It was my first experience of Tasmanian scrub, including some aerial bushwalking, once we pulled the pin and started dropping down from Pearse. We found ourselves 2 m up in a 3D maze of horizontal. Then some hours later it dawned on us that the clearing we were trying to find was the canopy of the tea tree forest we were in, with trunks 15 cm apart that did not want to move. It'd be interesting to go back now and see how easy it is! Maybe...

Yes there were.
Snow suggested Cradle area might be probable, particularly with the Pencil Pines.
The key features were a large drop off on the left, a line of bumps along the ridge and pencil pines.
I initially considered Marions lookout approach, Crater Peak and Artillery Knob, but no photos could match.
But thinking that the line of lumps probably look worse than they were, I checked some shots near Twisted Lakes towards Hansons.
No exact matches, but the profiles and pines gave a high probability.
I believe Hansons Peak is the high point on the left.

I know a couple of people who did it and said it was an easy day. Of course, they're more hardened scrub-bashers than either of us.
Also know someone who found a route up from the forestry tracks on the western side. Easier walking, but first you have to get to a start point, and those tracks are a *&%$#! maze.

Thanks, Eggs. Probably helps to have that memory of yours! :wink:

They probably stepped over the top of it all! Doing Pearse and Rocky SL separately was much more pleasant, but...it is unfinished business...

Thanks, c-m. I thought that was Ossa South rising out of the ocean of cloud along with PE.
Next - what mountain were we on our way up?
