Thanks. I thought I recognised those rocks jutting out into the sea. We crossed them in a fast-rising tide and got a bit wet!

Pink conglomerate, a hydro lake. Are you on the way to Mt Sedgwick?

Very, very close. We started to head to Sedgewick on Tuesday but the heat and the scrub and the lack of views due to smoke got the better of us and we turned back. This is from near the top of an Abel. Now you will know it.

Presumably that's why I didn't recognise it. Tyndall was so totally socked in when I summitted that I tripped over the remains of the trig before I saw them.

Yes, it's from near the top of Mt Sedgewick, looking down at the Camping Cave, used by rock climbers, I presume. We met a couple who had been climbing there and were just about to head off to Cape Hauy.

Have to get back there when the clouds aren't around.
From a different lumpy bit. Which one?

*forlorn sigh*
I've broken it again.

There are other things that share this name. There's a bay, a headland, some other water, a flat open place, all within 20km and all more or less visible from here.

Oh, good morning Tasmania.
Yes, as the cloud slowly rolled in and over and down. Luckily it cleared overnight.

Good morning to you too! It's always a bit slower than normal over the weekend.

Great spot that, lots of good camping around there. Here's the next one from a few summers ago now.

How much of that ridge did you cover? It looks like it would be fun to explore the whole thing, but there's a lot of bauera on it lower down.

Not all that much of it actually! From the end of the old forestry road I worked my way up before crossing over Coxs Creek and heading roughly SW towards the top. The blue 'X' is where the photo was taken.
