PW or KD? I've camped on King Davids once, beautiful (cold) night.

Ossa?

This looks one hell of a lot like sidling under the cliffs on PW, but not battling the wind and fog and rain while you're doing it.

Would have liked conditions like that when I did it. Things had been pretty good right through the previous day, and then it went badly downhill overnight. Think it came good more or less as I reached Old Pelion ... :roll:

Wasn't entirely sure until lining things up on ListMap. But that angle on Nereus, Perrins and Thetis gives it away.

You want to have a look at the answer above. They're on the right track. Although, to be strictly accurate about it, probably only one of those lumps has a name.

Indeed, and from where would you get an angle like that on Weindorfers?

When I did that track it was under 1m of dry snow, and I was stuck in a whiteout... I was mostly hoping I would miss all the cliffs.

Ahhh, you be young and foolish again.

On the topic of foolish endeavors, I would like to go back and sleep on this little perched bowl above the cliff when tassie opens up again.
