Are you somewhere in the Pleiades?

or maybe in the stepped hills?

Not on either of those mountains but you're in the right area...

That's Sedgwick on the right, isn't it? Just hang on a sec while I work out the angles, although I think you would have to be near The Bastion. Don't recall it looking like that from Geikie or The Chin.

Only time I got a view from Geikie there was a lot of snow around and it looks very different when everything's white.
Plateau looks different to my shots too. Maybe Last is a lot taller. And a bit further north than the only image I can find from near the summit.

Close enough NNW, it is from Geikie. I am not tall.

There's more of the ground behind the rock plateau visible, so you have to have been higher than I was.

Different type of view:

Wrong side of the centre line. Direction of view is a little less inaccurate.

mmmm, I checked a photo I took from Arthur a few months ago and the paddocks matched pretty well...but the hills, not so much.

I've got a feeling my second thought is actually closer but I'll let others jump in.

Ain't never heard of Heka, but it is from Loyetea. Even short easy dinky little one-pointers need a bit of love too.

This time the one who came second gets the gold. Arm Falls it is. Lovely thing, especially up top.
