Yes. Not more than a bump really, but a very cool bump it is, from the SW slopes of Pyramid Mountain.

That is a great shot! And insane zoom, too! What lenght was it shot on?

I see Macs, then Achilles, then Pelion West, then Cradle. Are you somewhere like... Goulds Sugarloaf?

Has to be Goulds SL or Little SL. Angle makes it seem more like Little SL, but would that be high enough?

Yes - it was Gould's Sugarloaf.
My go-to Zoom lens is 55 to 300mm - this was at 300mm

This was the view from Little Sugarloaf..

I'll be away for the next 4 days. When someone gets this, it should be easily corroborated, so don't await my answer :) Or post a new photo if there's no guesses :lol:

But the big question is what approach do you take to climbing Carina Peak?
This photo from the climb up Moraine K suggests a bench across at Lake Vesta would be workable?
But I believe the normal approach is from the south end of Promontory Lake?

PS - anyone should go next

I'm still fantasising about doing the ridge from Scorpio. Possible, just not very easy.

Suppose I'm as much an anyone as the next walker so, where did I go on my penultimate outing?

We need a snoring emoji. Or tumbleweeds. Or something of that nature.
No, that isn't a clue. I'm still trying to think of one. It's hard without steeping outside the dotted lines.

The game has been slow lately. It's only been 7hrs, some pics have been up for days recently before a guess is made.

I'll throw one out there for you though and say Remus?

Mt Dawson? You're standing on dolerite. I see a logging coupe on the next ridge. The bare range in the middle distance doesn't look like dolerite. There aren't that many places like that. The notch on the LH horizon is quite distinctive but I can't place it.

Close, but no cigar.

No, there aren't.
]The notch on the LH horizon is quite distinctive but I can't place it.

I think I've been there and even have a photo of it, but this is the only place I've been where I've noticed it from a distance.

That notch! I was there earlier in the year. It's visible from Mt lord but my shot isn't the same. I didn't take a pic in that direction from Lanes Peak but that should shift the background in the right direction. That's what I'm guessing. It can't be from the top though because there's no vegetation.

Yes, it's from Lanes, a little below the top. And if that notch is the place I'm thinking of, up close it looks a bit like this:

Stepped Hills. I did a circuit of the Denison Abels; Rhona, Reeds, side trip to Bonds, back over Great Dome, followed the ridges south to a T, sidetrip to Stepped, out over Wright. This is near the edge of the scarp a bit north of the Stepped summit. Was looking for water and noticed this notch from further east on the way up, so detoured past it when heading back to the pack.

The rock formations around the notch are fascinating too.

Sorry, Last. No idea where to start. Looks like a nice lump at the back. Is that Pelion West?? I really must study Tasmanian geology one day.

I suspect it might be from Lot - looking over the Sarah Jane plateau from which Angel Falls should be plummeting.
