There are no high mountains above the treeline further west than Buller and Sirling. Unless you mean Buller and Stirling taken from McDonald, Eagle's Peaks or the Governors.

The mountain on the right with the twin summits does look like Stirling and you can see the cut ski runs on the mountain on the right, so it's got to be Buller, taken from a southish direction.

You are all missing the clue on r h side of frame... taken from an aeroplane or chopper.

Somewhere over Jameison, southern end of Lake Eildon, maybe somewhere on the upper Jameison river...

No its on the ground, the thing on the edge of frame should be a tree, I was shooting between a couple to get the shot.

Surprised by the amount of detail picked up at a distance of 60km, was rater hclear.

A clue may be the spur on the skyline in the S looking pic. Frazels is in the general area, at least on the same map. Keep trying Bogong, you're good at this stuff

Yes Sidetrack, Diamentina spur is in 2nd pic. Avalanche ridge is very, very close. Pic taken at around 1720m ascending East ridge (next one N from Avalanche?). 1st pic is looking upward toward the knoll/peak between Feathertop and North Peak

Frazels, I was a mule for the day! I took a mid-size pack with camera gear, clothing, gps, food/drink etc etc. It was late arvo when we got back to the summit ridge. Ascending with a pack was easier than descending!

This was to explore and a chance to scope the NE runs from the summit area, North Peak and the spurs that run down to the Kiewa River West Branch for this winter. Looks awsome, but the deep gullies are way too serious! I'll stick to the spurs and bowls. The NE spur off North Peak looks very open now after the fires, all the way to the river.

Well, it's been a couple of days since the last post, so I assume Sidetrack doesn't have a happy snap for us. Anyway I want to try posting an image in this rather interesting new style moosh. Sorry if I'm treading on any toes.

Cannot remember the name of the peak (probably called tower hill or something) but it's just to the west of the road you go to like this:

South from Halls Gap, near Lk Bellfield, turn right up the sealed road. Near the top of the range is a track junction with a dirt road heading downhill that passes the Bundaleer cliffs on the right. Continue to the bottom of the hill and it becomes a 4wd track (just) and starts to climb again. This outcrop is on the right about here.

No wonder they invented Cartesian style grid refs!!

It's The Fortress in the Victoria Range of The Grampians, so Alex C. gets the cigar. It's a brilliant area, with relatively easy access and none of the pack hauling and deep bogs you get in Tasmania if you want to see equivalent hills down there.

Sorry about the giraffes, they are a bit out of control on the Victoria Range. You almost have to beat them off with a stick and then they instinctively climb to the highest point nearby.

Someone enquired about The Fortress and has since deleted their post. I wrote this in reply so, I may as well add it to this post.

The Fortress, is in the Victoria Range on the western edge of the Grampians. It's a long way from Hall's Gap, and even the spot where I took the photo is a long way up a steep hill, so not many people go there.

There are some awesome climbs on the Fortress like Passport to Insanity, some are over Grade 30. Two of my friends managed to get to the top 8 days ago without ropes, but they took some fairly dodgy risks and jumped between jugs. I cowered down at the bottom and tried not to look. Instead I went giraffe hunting.

I free climed this hill a couple of weekends ago (albeit from the other side). Still it was a climb (not a scramble), and I was pleased to get to the top of the highpoint of the Fortress!

Not much of a cairn on top so I gathered a few rocks together myself!

Until we are instructed otherwise, yes.

Its been a few days, so i'll put a big tip in.. It was taken about 200 metres from a ski run at a resort. Name the Ski run or the gully to the left (dont think the ridge has a name).

Yeah Currawong close enough. Taken from the ridge that spurs off "Easy Street" at Big D Hotham. The gully to the left is Loch Glen. Nice area... found $10 bucks in the Loch Glen. Looking out over the Dargo High Plains, with the Dargo River in the foreground. Next pic.

I think you're being generous frazels, but I don't have to be asked twice
