WDBS, High West #9, Harlech Rd [????- ]

Hi There,

Spotted this in early May 2020.  The marker is of the road side I took.  It is a bit off from the stone itself.  Look for the HL 29 plaque on the left hand side of Harlech Road, then look up.  There you have it.

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.
