I found a few track notes and references for Victoria Arch but not much on Hole in The Wall.
I don't know if either is an official name?

What are we climbing in NSW (most of it is behind me):

Yes crollsurf, that was quick. I'll have to stop posting pics from locations I know we've both been :).

That was an easier one for me. Some I have no idea until some one gets it right and then it clicks and I think, yeah, why didn't I get that.
More NSW.

Still in NSW. I have edited the photo to remove the name of the track - I'm looking for the track's name.

Right NP, but it's not the Long Track (which ends at the delightfully named Peach Trees, with not a stone fruit in sight).

I originally thought Challenger but the name blacked out looks a lot shorter than that

Not Challenger, but very close. This track isn't shown on the topo map but, as the plaque indicates, has existed since 1937.

I've walked a lot of those tracks but not for many years.
Wouldn't have much chance of guessing if it isn't shown on maps.
But somehow I totally stumbled on to it - Jim's Track.

That's actually the site I stumbled on to. He has some good write ups, will have to revisit the area when I can.

Just to clarify WFBW, you did mean Mt Gibraltar, aka "The Gib"?
There is a reason I'm asking, which the correct answer will reveal.

This spot has an official name, and an informal one shared by a former prime minister.

Which is only a few kms from here. If the named lump on the right was removed I could probably see it.
