Thought about this one last year - ended up on Kepler instead that week - its all good.
You can cross the Dart River by a bridge half way along (or perhaps hitch a lift across with a jet boat) then take a track up Rock Burn, and over Sugarloaf Saddle to join the Routeburn Track about 10 minutes walk from its start.
Classic Tasmania. It couldn't be anywhere else in the whole world.
Mini hijack here. Haven't been able to post for ages due to a move. Finally have internet set up at home. About three threads ago i put the following pic up and i am pretty sure noone got it. Its taken from just north of the Rams Head looking south east toward the upper Thredbo River cathment (cascade firetrail area). I aim to post a real clanga in the coming weeks.
Mine was from Mt Buffalo - the lookout near the chalet at dawn. No takers.
Nice one chunky. I was going to guess howqua somewhere.
Snow blowey you can post any photos you like, you take a very fine photo.
Yeah graeme, i did the Rees-Dart, Kepler and the 10-day Stewart Island circuit on that trip to NZ. All good stuff. Didnt get to see much on the Kepler as we had gale force winds, snow, sleet and white out across the high bits, so i guess i consider the R-D more spectacular.
JAM, back to that saddle i cant remember from Frenchmans'? Nah. Hartz Range?
SB and Chunky. Sorry you got missed. SB, I had Ramshead in mind, but looking the wrong way.
Maybe the rulebook should include "no subsequent photos posted until last one is solved". ?
JAM: South West Tas (Quarzite) (Early morning looking north) De Witt Range???? or Rugby Range???
Snowblowey, was your pic sunrise?
thanks for clearing that up snow blowey. its been bugging me
It's OBVIOUSELY Tasmania. It's from a pretty main stream walking area. I'm sure you've been there.
The peak in the picture has a spot height of 1066m on the 1:25000 map. That should make it easy!
I'll leave the guessing to someone else, but great photo, as is snow bloweys
peak bagging, with a difference
A few minutes after the sun went down.
JAM: Thought it looked familiar. PIne Knob from near Artichoke Valley. There's a great exposed campsite facing north near here (under Sharlands Peak) (last time I was there was in '83).
I was thinking King William Range. After all it was William the Conquerer who either won or lost the battle of Hastings in 1066 (won i presume with his name). Is it King William III?
Legend got it. It's Pine Knob from Frenchmans Cap.
This view was on the cover of a previous edition to the Lonely Plant guide to Tasmania and had me baffled. I just couldn't work out were it was, and assumed it was an aerial photo. It really annoyed me as I liked to imagine I knew my way around Tasmania pretty well.
Just happended to be walking past at sun rise last week and recognised it.
Legend, if you found that camp site, you were probably looking for Daverns Cavern. Did you find the cavern?
Found the campsite purely by accident on an extremely hot airless day. Climbed up to the ridge above to get a breeze and looked down onto a beautiful flat. Did spend some time exploring and found a very tall cave. It didn't meet the description of the cavern though.
Daverns Cavern is not correctly marked on alot of maps. It is fairly difficult to find but once there its quite a substantial cave, from memory about 5 metres wide, 3 metres high and 25 metres in. From there its a great view looking north towards the Reserve.
So it was from the frenchman?. Should have stuck with my first guess. Is it Barron pass in the saddle or am i looking the wrong way? Its been a while....
It's looking approx north from Artichoke Valley
The photo was from a point about half way from North Col to the summit of Frenchmans. (I slept in too late to get to the summit for sun rise.) Barron Pass is way out of the photo to the right.
Thanks, great photo. I was in there in early September maybe 6 or 7 years ago. Needless to say the lodden was sodden, and views were few.
too easy chunky
OK, here's another of mine. As far as I know the peak has no name but the place the pic was taken from will be familiar to many.
Is it the ridge a bit east of dead horse gap? If this is the case you'd be somewhere near the start of the cascade fire trail.
Sorry SB, no cigar.... but you are in the right National Park.
Looking up from Friday Flats to the range above the Alpine Way? Sun setting?
Ah, of course. It's Paddy Rushes' Bogong.
You're all too far South.
Bulls Peak Area (south east of Jagungal)
Gungartin seen from Schlink Pass? Are those the snow poles on the road there on the foreground?
I reckon Kieran is right. The poles will be the powerline. Photo taken pre-2003 fires.
Yes indeed! (not actually Gungarten but near enough)
This pic below was taken from the hillside to the left of the peak,
and this is where the little peak was photographed from, Whites River.
Well spotted with the power poles on the Schlink Pass road.
PS all shots taken Dec.99
Assuming Kierans right i'll put one up (i'm owed from a while back.
Name the National Park and more specifically the place where the first three pics were taken.
Its in NSW.
Highest peak in the national park is over 1500m ASL.
Highest peak in the 4th pic is over 1300m ASL.
Warrumbungles? Mt Kaputar?
First pic is Mt Exmouth in the Warrumbungles I think
One thing for sure, you were out taking photos yesterday somewhere not too far from Moree
I'm invoking the 10 page rule. My guess would be warrumbungles. Ive got a shot almost identical to the last one taken from the western side of the park.
