    More Pacific please. Such as the name of the snow capped ridge at the back. And, as I recall, not from Tugg. But that is not relevant :)

    Mt Gingera is the most recognisable peak in the ACT.

    Some pedigree tentage there. Hows the hardcore chap who's gone the snow shelf on a retreating drift in the background?

    The chaps that elected to dig out a snow platform did regret their decision as the Nov sun was relentless with its melting powers over the 4 days we were there.

    One of the best features of that little red tent is the ability to peg it down before inserting poles and erecting, very handy when it's blowing a gale. Same when packing up, tent remains firmly pegged down with no chance of any part getting blown into the next valley.

    That's it. Off the eastern side, not far along the ridge towards Muellers.

    Eastern side? Surely that would take you near Rawsons.

    Sorry, badly worded first thing in the morning.

    We were on the eastern side of the kosci-muellers ridge line, a few hundred metres northeast of kosci.

    Correct, mostly. Is indeed basalt and the geological formation commonly called 'Bunbury Basalt'. Although connected, the expressions of the formation at Bunbury, where most people see it, and at the slightly more remote Black Point, where photo was taken are reasonably disparate.

    And Black Point is a much nicer place.

    We were all scratching around Australia's miniscule 2000m plus zone. Rare, beautiful. Glaciated.
