1959: Mt Inglis or Valentines Peak?

Postby guyburns » Sat 03 Jul, 2021 6:57 pm

I'm indexing slides from a 1959 trip to High Dome from Lake Petrarch, a trip with Dave Pinkard, Jim Kerrison and Fay Hamilton (later Jim's wife). That trip will become a part of the Eldon Boys presentation in November this year. On 22 February the trio were approaching Little Sugarloaf and Fay took the attached photo. I go a bit overboard with indexing sometimes, and want to name every peak in the photo. From the left we've got High Dome, Tramontane (low in front), Nereus and a distant peak on the right. Is that Mt Inglis or Valentines Peak?

A Google Earth approximation, KJ07, is attached as a kmz file. It should take you close to the spot the photo was taken.

If you zoom in it has the distinctive shark fin shape of Inglis, and the surrounding land looks too flat and high for St Vals. Pretty sure it's Inglis.

Agreed.
The other factor is that it would be impossible to see Valentines from that low down.
