    Sidetrack. I reckon the "Ben Lomond Bliss" threads would exceed 100 pages in total. They generally go through about 30 pages each winter and 8 each summer. They've been at it for years, but it hasn't brought them much snow, poor sods [​IMG]

    I said something about 100 pages, but on rethinking, that will not be reached until end of WTFIT No 10.

    Spot on kieren.
    First pic taken from a little outcrop about 10 metres from the top of first pitch, looking straight down. The pool at the bottom is at the bottom of the 4th or 5th pitch and is about 210 metres away. You can see the slot comming in on the left in both pics. My mate is standing on the edge of the first pitch, and yes he is clipped in.

    Re: Where is this? No10

    Gosh, mr, that was quick! I didn't think it looked much like Lake Tali Karng, which is why I posted it.

    Skifree, the lake was formed by a landslide in the aptly named Valley of Destruction a few thousand years ago. The hills surrounding it are so steep, that they're still prone to slipping away.

    Next photo please!

    Re: Where is this? No10

    Well VSG, all my other LTK photos are zoomed right out so the viewer has a bit of perspective, that one is zoomed in a bit, so it doesn't show surrounding hills that might help in identification.

    Also the slope is on the south shore of the lake facing north, so the vegetation is much drier than the relatively lush vegetation you walk through if you take the track that skirts the north shore. Anyway, that's why I think the photo is untypical of LTK.

    By the way its Tarli Karng not Lake Tarli Karng as 'Karng' means 'Lake' in the Kurnai tongue. Calling it LTK is tantamount to calling it Lake Tarli Lake....

    Re: Where is this? No10

    Alex. I was using the popular (and official) name used by ordinary people. Ever since (was it Alfred Howitt?) discovered the lake, this is what ordinary punters (as opposed to linguists) have called it.

    But since you've bought up its aboriginal history, I find it interesting that most bands or sub-tribes of the local aborigines considered the place taboo. It's such a pretty place, but it may be remotely possible that a folk memory of the original landslide had passed down to them. Can oral tradition last a few thousand years without evolving into a completely different story?

    Re: Where is this? No10

    If the literatal translation of LTK is 'Lake Tali Lake' (No 'r' in Tali), I can see why it irritates you, because Port Phillip Bay has the same effect on me. A body of water desinated 'Port' is by its very nature, a bay. The first explorers King and Flinders certainly thought so, because they were happy to call it 'Port Phillip'. The term 'bay' is redundant and isn't needed. But I can't change the popular name, so I just live with it.

    Re: Where is this? No10

    I disagree, you can have a port that is not a bay. For example Port Germain is not a bay. And Port Adelaide is in a river not a bay.

    So there is no problem with Port Phillip Bay.

    Re: Where is this? No10

    Except that it is not officially called 'P.P.B.' and never has been, it's always been 'Port Phillip'. But popular usage has appended the 'Bay'.

    I tend to side with the people against bureaucrats and academics on most things, so I've had to accept Port Phillip Bay is the defacto name, although I continue to call it 'Port Phillip'.

    Re: Where is this? No10

    you could argue that the bay is much bigger than the port, and thus PPB is the bay where PP is located.

    Can't say this is a major annoyance to me - I'm far too busy worrying about serious problems like foul swoops, different tacts and irregardless.

    The vegetation in JAM's photo looks a bit dry for the Otways, so I'll guess it's in the Blue Mountains?

    I'll hazard a guess it's near Oberon. It's where those caves are due to the colour of the water, the stalatite/stalitmite caves.
    Stuffed if I know the name of them.
    Jenolan Cave region???
    Could even go so far as to say on The Balcony-Lucas Cave.

    JAM's is a canyon somewhere in the Blue mountains.. we'll need a few more clues to narrow it down to which one. Which catchment? It definitely ain't kowmung VSG.
