Definitely not Wylds - in fact the peak in view is not the tallest in the "range".
However, Goon Moor is getting quite close.

Picton. Not Wylds, that peak in view could be the dial, that would make you just a bit north of goon moor?

I am on the same range as Goon Moor - but not very close.
The peak at back is in the Picton group, but not Picton.
The rocky ridge closer in is not part of the range I am on.

Sorry icefest - a bit slow to respond.
Apart from it being Mt Hopetoun and Mt Chapman, I guess the rest is correct :roll:

I reckon you're on the Wilmot Range, looking south - maybe near Koruna Peak?

Possibly the stream outlet just around the corner from and to the SW of Wilson Bight campsite.

I do appreciate precision in an answer. Yes, that's it.
Apologies for the delay: weddings, parties, that sort of thing.

Well, the back row matches my photos of Barn, Benson and Cradle from Cathedral, but the angle isn't quite right. Oakleigh and February Plains almost hidden. I'll try from a little further north, where we mostly saw the inside of a cloud. I'll try Bishop Peak.
