Looks to me like Tahune. Can’t place where from exactly.

Not Tahune. But closer again than the previous shot.

Was going to leave this for someone else to have a go, but ... looks like the gap you pass through on the Irenabyss track.

It won't be it, but it reminds me of Great Pine Tier.

Think more about what's opposite to a tier or barrier...

The clue makes me think of valleys and gates, so maybe in the Walls. Not sure where though, even if I'm on the right track!
+1 to nnw's welcome back, btw. :)

Thanks Tortoise! :)

Walls is right, but this spot I am at has a specific name. I am looking at something with a name and there are prominent features left, right and behind me.

I've only visited some of these things. Are you in Damascus Vale looking at the Wailing Wall? Mt Moriah would be to the left, Solomons Throne to the right.
Not exactly prominent but definitely recognisable, Jaffa Vale would be behind.

Getting warmer but not quite.

Ah, I suspect you're at my other guess, which I wasn't sure of looking at photos I took from Mt Jerusalem.

Not much to go on there, John! :)

I'll start off just to get the ball rolling...

Lake Balmoral? (I haven't been there, so it is a wild stab in the dark.)

I could have posted a wider view but no fun if it's too easy Nik :wink:. Not Balmoral but you're not far away at all.
There looks to be a trig on the high point, but it's not a named peak AFAIK. This lake definitely has a name though.

Trig... that makes more sense. I though it looked like a person up there.

Unlike a larger one much further along the same track.

Could it be Lake Evans?

I haven't been to the south side of Forty Lakes Peak, but I suppose the map looks like it could fit the picture.

(I'm just guessing after adding the "Survey Control" layer to LIST Map, and seeing what's near Lake Nameless - from your clues. The only points nearby are Forty Lakes Peak and Ironstone Mtn.)

the only trig I can see on "thelist" on an unnamed peak is the one just NE of Lake MacKenzie, but that doesn't seem to match the rest of the clues.....
