Thanks Last. Having only been on Ossa in that area it took a bit of detective work.

I don't think it is, Last - I suspect Eggs was right with Hyperion, though I got no views from there in that direction. But see my (poor quality) shot from Eros below, where Paddys Nut (I think) is sitting right in front of Cradle.

In your photo, I thought we were looking at Thetis, with Achilles to the left, Paddys Nut to the right and the western flank of Ossa. And the tippy top of PW behind. I think your photo must have been taken from somewhere on a line east of Eros. With cliffs. Like Hyperion?

Not sure Tortoise. I didn't climb Hyperion on the trip the photo is from. I thought the cliffs in the foreground were the back of Hyperion. Apologies to all if i'm wrong

Had another look at the sequence. I think i'm on the moraine between Hyperion and Eros. Again, apologies.

This is from the top of Hyperion, as you can see a bit higher up, different foreground

So that's the view from Hyperion! Thanks, Last. I might get back there one day to see it. :)

G'day, Wander. I'm trying to make it somewhere on the southern end of the Frankland Range, but the islands won't fit. :(

True, I have submitted Frankland Range pics in the past, but we are bit further South here.

Yes we are on the lower flanks of Mt Rugby looking to the small bluff on the Southern end of the ridge.

I presume that is the route you took up? From a boat?

Next is a bit different - if you click on the photo you should be able to make out some people.
Name the thing that has attracted them to this place?

There’s a lot of white water there so maybe one of Pennicott’s boats getting in close to ca cave or something.

The people have not come by boat.
Open it up to get the most detailed view.
They are wearing helmets.

To start with I only saw the person/s down the bottom, wearing red. Now I see two more up the top. From that and you saying they're wearing helmets I guess they're climbers, possibly looking down at someone who is climbing up or abseiling down. There are lots of cliffs like this and my first thought was Tasman Island but since it seems there are climbers it might be on Cape Hauy, or one of many other possible locations.

Yes, pack raft to Platypus Point, we found out later this route is not used and Parks endorse a different route from a small cove on the West side Mt Rugby Peninsula from which the track you see comes from. We left by that route after spending a couple of days in pouring rain in the saddle in the picture.

Next clue - Yes 2 are on top with 2 below - and they had not climbed a cliff!!
Not in South Coast area.
This is a telephoto shot from another hiking location [Cape Hauy has been mentioned :wink: ]
There is a main walking track on the tops above them.
