Burnt Downs, Blue Mtns, 1100M.
I thought after @Slowman posted an unOz BC pic in the “Where is this” thread, maybe a OS BC thread could be entertaining and also I think some who post here may have been to amazing places and taken some inspiring photos.

Good thread, we also need a domestic 'where is this' for Oz that is not backcountry.

A lot of the pics I have handy are pretty obscure (that's a clue in itself potentially...), but here goes:

If you can pick the mountain range, you're probably doing alright.

Why did this thread take so long to evolve? Not much gets me more excited than poring over distant mountain ranges topos.

Eyre Mountains?

I did actually have a heli day down in the Eyre range back in 1996. Mt Dick & Symmetry peaks according to my notes. Wanaka region was under cloud cover that day so we headed down that way and had some nice spring conditions, even though it was mid August.

The Eyre mountains often have the lowest snow line in the country. Some big terrain in there, including NZ's longest water ice climbing route.

Ding ding ding, you got it. Busy day here so took me a while to see it!

Western slopes of Jane Peak in the Eyre Mountains. Beaut spot. Don't tell anyone.

Process of elimination.

Heinz had worked through a few of the candidates.
