Everything tagged "the peak"

Most south-easterly of the hills ontop of Mount Austin [????- ]

Mount Austin (i.e. the massif within the loop of Lugard and Harlech roads) has a number, I would say four, of slightly lower peaks in the immediate vicinity of its summit. None of these subsiduary peaks have distinguishing names as far as I am aware, which can lead to confusion when attempting to identify or describe specific locations ontop of "The Peak".

This "place" marker is for the most south-easterly of these subsiduary peaks.
