    I think you will have people permanently stumped on this one. Give it one more day... and then we might have another image put up... or you could spill the beans! [​IMG]

    In a national park in Western Australia. This rock is known by the same name as a well known rock feature just north of Melbourne.

    PS It's big...the white dot is my 4wd!

    Yep, Hanging Rock, Rudall River WA

    A fantastic place, one of the most stunning places I have been to in Australia.

    We even went back two years later on our Honeymoon when we hired a little Cessna and flew around WA, landing on what was left of the old airstrip after chasing the camels off it. [​IMG]

    A few pages ago it was The Juggernaut's turn to post a pic. His computer had a block on uploading stuff or something, so he asked me to post it for him.

    Castle Crag, Arapilies. Can't remember the name of this climb (it's a 10) but procul harem (26) goes up the overhang to the left.

    edit...can't find my guide book on the shelf and thinking of who I might have lent it to [​IMG] Just googled it and they are now saying this climb (Trapeze) is now an 11? Bit hard to say that there is a difference I would have thought at that grade!

    Damit everytime I look away some one posts a picture a could have got. I was about to do this climb about 5 weeks ago and massive storm hit drenching about 15 people on Tiger wall. We sat the rain out under the plethora of overhangs.

    The extra grade could be for protecting the traverse. Newer guidebooks seem to factor this kind of thing in more.

    I've never been to Colin Todd so I am just guessing huts that I haven't been to. Makes it kinda hard. Judging by the plushness it must be one of the major huts.

    Yep, a well known NZ hut. It is possible (though I am not sure) that this toilet is no longer there as the hut was replaced some years ago. However the view as shown (from the balcony) should not have changed too much!

    lol @ skifree!

    I'm bit confused here. I agree re background looking approx SW from somewhere in Carruthers area - foreground looks like the track from Blue Lake turnoff to saddle with Carruthers off left, looking approx north
