    Well we still have skifree's puzzle from the last thread:

    [​IMG]

    Whilst that is under consideration here is something else. What area? Which track?

    Not around Licola. It's a management vehicle only track - should help narrow things down somewhat [​IMG]

    Hmmmm, Avon wilderness? But that's 'around' Licola. More thinking required.

    Pinnibar area? (I think I might be seeing the Main Range on the far horizon.)

    EDIT. Upon reflection, I think it's a bit too dry to be Pinnibar. My recurring nightmare of reliving a 3 day scrub-bash along the Hermit Range is coming back.

    It's not the Cobberas, but somewhere near where the Snowy crosses the border is my revised guess.

    Well done Bogong! It's the Nine Mile Pinch track - leaves the Barry Way at Pinch River and climbs almost 1000m before dropping into the valley of the Ingeegoodbee. The Pinch River is the valley at the bottom, and the hill behind it is the Charcoal Range.

    The track is insanely steep in places - I had to zig-zag on the way up some of the anti-erosion humps due to lack of traction from my boots! The trip down by mountain bike is rather fun [​IMG]

    Craig, you go to some wonderfully obscure places [​IMG] I'm surprised I fluked that one. It was more by eliminating any other location than by a an intimate knowledge of the area. I've only been there once.

    Most of my photos are on CD and I'm supposed to be at work, so I'll post a fairly easy favourite. It was painted in the 1930's, by an ancestor of a bloke in my club, but nothing has changed.

    That looks like Mt Ida on the side of Lake St Clair.

    Correct Beeper, it's Mt Ida.

    BTW. Are you the person who is a member of Wellington Ski Club? If so, please PM or email me, I can't find their phone number and we'd like to pay big bucks to hire it over Easter. Negotiations with four other clubs have fallen through, they don't want our money [​IMG] At this late stage we're prepared to pay silly amounts for any lodge (or preferably two lodges) at Mt Mawson.

    Next picture please.

    Oh well, it must have been someone else around here. Gosh the Mt Mawson clubs make it hard! Only two have websites (Oldina & Uni, both knocked us back). All the others have the same GPO Box (Mail not answered for over a month) and a phone no with a winter recording on it and instructions not to leave any voice mail!

    Next photo!

    Well the hint is you can see mine from St Mary's Peak.

    sidetrack, are we looking in tassie for your unremarkable pile of rocks?

    I'd bet my right arm that scene couldn't be anywhere else! It looks a bit Ben Lomondesque.

    sidetrack, reminds of maybe PB way.

    VSG, yep it is the panorama as is the location it is taken from. The trick is it is an unusual viewing angle.

    Actually I have no idea what its called and I dont know where my map is. So to save us all the trouble its the wall on the left as enter the walls with Mt King David on the right.

    I only had about 5 hours so I ran/walked to dixons and back with the camera. There was tons of ice, I imagine that a few days earlier would have been better.

    So the answer would be cliffs of Ophelia taken from Herod's Gate, where the 'gate' is on the map. Sidetrack, i think you only stuffed up yourself.....

    would it be as marked here? I think Opelia itself is hidden behind Zion Hill.

    Yeah that would be it. Its a pretty magic place the walls. I actually enjoyed it more than Cradle probably because I was the only one there.

    Sidetrack. That's good enough. Eucumbene River, a few k's downstream of Kiandra. Tabletop Mountain, and Jagungal, are over the ridge in the background. [​IMG]

    Bogong - my thoughts exactly.

    BTW, a great MTB ride is from there, all the way down to the Nine Mile Pinch, and then descend the Nine Mile. loses 1000m altitude in about 9 k's. Ripping. About 60k's all up.

    You will need a car shuffle unless the crawl out up the Barry Way is also your idea of a good time (add another 60 approx).

    The snowpoles are a big hint I didn't observe earlier, I suspect Exciseboy has it right.

    Long time since I was up there, but somewhere on Mt Buffalo?
