Crater Bluff with Tonduron Spire

8개월 전

Soft pre-dawn light bathes Crater Bluff with Tonduron Spire just a distant peak in the background. Taken from the Grand High Tops of the Warrumbungles after night hike to reach this spot. It has to be one of the most underrated places in Australia. The first European to sight and explore the area was John Oxley in 1818 who named the range the Arbuthnot Range. The Aboriginal name 'Warrumbungles' from the Gamilaroi tribe meaning 'crooked mountains', soon took over as the most frequently used name. Lieben, on Crater Bluff, was the most difficult rock climb in Australia for many years after its first ascent by Bryden Allen and Ted Batty in 1962. Warrumbungle National Park, New South Wales, Australia

Thanks. Its not a well photographed place on social media.

Very nice lighting and composition, too. I wonder if anyone has climbed that one. The view from the top has got to be pretty spectacular, too.
