It is not Mt Nelse taken from the Glen Wills area. EXREMELY close though!
Mt Arthur above Bogong Village
mmmm I am not so sure.
No, not Mt Arthur and not Spion Kopje!
Bogong was extremely close with his last post - I took the photo within ~10km of Glen Wills. I don't expect anyone to pinpoint the place where I took it, as it was on a vehicle track off the Omeo Highway that is of minimal interest to bushwalkers
It is definately not of Mt Nelse though.
Must be mt wills then, south end where the hut is.
Correct Photo was taken from the Razorback Spur track. The view is a little different, as most people see Mt Wills from either the south (along Omeo Highway) or the west (from Mt Bogong along the Long Spur).
When Bogong said that the treeline was too low i agreed, but now looking closely, its not a tree line, but a burn line or a change in the colour of the photo and if you look at the spur between the humps of wills (north hump unseen) there are trees.
The 2 rocky outcrops gave it away, as did all the failed guesses.
ps sorry, too busy today to find and load a new one.
Oh well, it was that 'false' treeline that got me, that's why I thought it had to be a BIG mountain (ie over 2000 m in NSW or about 1740+ in Victoria).
I remember climbing Mt Wills from Sunnyside in torretial rain which turned into a howling blizzard along the summit ridge on 28 Dec 1999. We all had pretty bad hyperthermia, I reckon the hut near the summit saved our lives. Even mid size mountains can turn on rotten summer weather!
Is that Mt Corey top left of shot?
mmm.. I could see how Shanahans might be a candidate.. but no. And Mt Coree? no.
However, Sblowey is closer than Majik. Canberra is visible from this spot.
VSG, is that the view from Mt Franklin?
excuse me for butting in vsg, i'm sure we can handle 2 at once...
likewise, from and to
mr: Climbing Whitsunday Peak (Whitsunday Is), Hook Is in the background
argh dammit, too easy
VSG, looking back to Canberra with Tidbinbilla the higher peak on the left, but if so I'm not sure where from, I'm guessing Gingera but maybe Ginini?
Only if you've been there and climbed it from that side.
Yay, got one. But everyone's rolled on.
VSG. I knew it was Ginini as I've skied the old cleared ski run in the foreground and Gingera is one of my favouritest hills in ACT.
still no takers? The hill its taken from has been mentioned a couple of times in this thread.
edit: BlueHue is damn close. Just needs to refine where its taken from.
yep, is only a bump.
I like bumps
i'm cr@p on bumps and i've got nfi about the pic
Tidbinbilla Range, Tidbinbilla Peak 1605m on the left horizon, Canberra in the haze out to the middle horizon. From Mt Gingera, 1857m. Blue Hue almost had it.
Well I hope everybody has a happy and safe new year
Its in vic
Looks like the Yanakie Ismus (extreme north of Wilsons Prom) looking west to Shallow Inlet (right) and towards Waratah Bay/Walkerville & Cape Liptrap (extreme left).
I'm off to the Arthurs tonight then another 10 day crossing of the Central Plateau. Happy New Year!!!
Seeing as it's almost New Years Day, here's one I took on 1 Jan 1998. It's probably obvious it's Tassie, but where???
Sorry Telestrom, I missed your almost simultaneous post.
JAM. You were quick off the mark.
Yes, it's New Harbour. Had a great time there camping on the beach.
We had a dinner of fresh abalone cooked in garlic and butter and fresh muscles in garlic and white wine and all washed down with a fair quantity of alcohol.
Back to the snow.....
Where is this?
Got mine as well JAM. Is yours the King Billys?
It's not King Billy.
It's not the Razorback.
Mt Murry looking towards Blue rag.
It's no where near Mt Murray (same state though)
mmmm somewhere near Mount St Bernard?
If its the twins or somewhere near st bernard then its not far from mt Murray. However im pretty sure its not the Twins.
Is it Mt Pinnabar?
Spot on Sidetrack; it's Mt Pinnabar.
We went on a 3 day trip to Mt Cobberas, but there was almost no snow there. However, Mts Gibbo & Pinnabar looked well covered, so it was back to the car and then generally north on then un-mapped forestry roads to get some decent skiing.
I had a little play with maps.. Pinnibar is only 12 kms, as the magpie flies, from Tom Groggin Station, on the NSW/VIC border. TG itself is only a similar distance from Thredbo Village...
Use the scroll bars to wander around this map. Horiz scroll is at bottom of image.
Mts Anderson and Gibbo are lower left.
edit: a little bit of satellite imagery (luckily with winter snow evident) illustrates the relative position of Pinnibar and the NSW main range...
JAM... is that Gibbo in the distance?
Think you're right VSG. Just had a quick flick through some archive pic and found the following:
Mt Pinibar (and Mt Bogong) from near Cootapatumba Hut:
Mt Pinibar (right of shot) and Mt Gibbo (left of shot) from Koz:
Tom Groggin and Mt Pinibar from South Ramshead:
Thanks SB! Excellent pictures. And very handy lenses you have! The last one really illustrates the void between the NSW Main Range and any alpine country further south (eg Pinnibar)
hopefully we get a bit more snow this year for better touring
I'll keep the ball rolling.
This one's a little more mainstream and shouldn't be to hard
