    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.

    Blister city!

    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.

    I like your thinking, but too far back the other way.

    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 think it's been tried
    Ends up being too easy or too obscure

    If you can find me terrain like that in the Carrick Range, I will post up permanently in Bannockburn.

    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.

    Process of elimination.

    Heinz had worked through a few of the candidates.
