Very close, probably no more than ~1 km away. I'm on the western side of something.
I walked up the Crummer Spur on the way here.

Elevation suggest Twynam - and maybe somewhat to the south of there.

Yes eggs, southwest-ish maybe 10 minutes or so walk down from the summit trig.

You are making it too easy eggs :). I love that area when I get to visit.
You are looking at Carruthers Peak with a section of Club Lake below.
Probably taken from or near Mt Lee.

This location has been mentioned in the last 12 posts or so.
There is a named peak out of frame a couple of kms to the left (also mentioned in recent posts).

Yes Stef. An underrated location in my opinion. Great place for a wander away from the hordes.

I thought the middle peak was Yankee Hat! So I got it wrong but seeing as the cat is out of the bag, here is a another photo in the ACT. Name the peak or the valley I'm walking down to on the AAWT
