I think there may be a saddle on Mueller that could yield this view.

Thanks Tortoise, got there eventually. I knew it had to be somewhere near where I've been.

Neither of those. Graham is getting closer but still some way off. I'm just off a popular track.

I love stepping out onto that on the way to the falls.

Where did I get a view during the second visit?

Your little man (for what is that a euphemism on this occasion?) is dead right. Big difference from the first climb.

It's not Warners, Parsons, Yeates, Deans ... pretty sure there's nothing like that on Dixons or Higgs or any of the tracks from Smoko Rd. Saggs?

Right sort of area - only a 2.5km walk in from a road called a highway.
