No, but you're about 50% closer.

With a clue like that it points to Drys Bluff but it doesn't match my (limited) pics.

Both are getting closer but still a way off. Wild Dog is a bit too far south. Drys is closer.
There is some zoom in this shot.

Agreed - but if it is Projection Bluff - I think he must be looking south east, towards Sandbanks Tier

Was that a clue in John's post. Or was it a Cluan?

Sorry guys, a bit slow to get going this morning. Yes it is from Projection Bluff.
That direction looks about right eggs, based on my recollection as it was a number of years ago.
I took a variety of shots in different directions and zoom settings, mainly from around the top of the escarpment above the road.
So it's over to Rexyviney36.

The protruding Little Hugel confirmed my thinking after I checked a very similar photo I'd taken.
