That looks like really rugged terrain! Is that the highest point? It looks like it might be higher to the left side...

How often do you climb to the top?? Every day? Every week?? ;-)a  :p

Nice Image Richard!!

Thanks Charles. Yes it's rugged
The highest point is further to the left.
You can see how this compares with this image taken today also from same place.

I've only been up it probably a dozen times! Last time 18 months ago.
Always went further inland far away from civilisation in my bushwalks to get away.
Whilst it's beautiful up there, nothing beats Tassie highlands with lakes, mountains and pure bliss.

As you may have realized, I was joking when I asked if you had been climbing that huge mountain!

You surprised me when you said you have actually been up there!! Wow!!

It's one big conglomerate boulder "siliciclastic Cambro-Ordovician conglomerate"

Thanks Richard, your photo reminds me of some of the rock in Litchfield NP. There is some siliciclastic conglomerate near Florence Falls (although much older) but most of the rock in the park (called the Tabletop Range) is quartzite (i.e. metamorphosed sandstone) capped with a later, harder sandstone.

Yep. I was going to be a geologist once
We have interesting geology for such a small island.
East Coast granite mountains, interior dolerite mountains overlaid in places on sandstone, conglomerate, basalt, along with iceage glacial and moraine features etc.
We're rather diverse and special.

And of course the whole reason Tassie is an island off the mainland these days is because of the vast, flooded (and I think still growing) rift valley now called Bass Strait.
