Above - Vengeance Peninsula and Bull Island from Axehead Mountain. Both
can be sky-line traversed.
Above - The "thin bit" of Vengeance Peninsula. Behind is Lacys
Tableland. On the right are two obvious passes. One is up the point in
the middle right. Rope is handy for one section of this pass. The other
is on the far right - Lacys Gap - and easy walk up pass - just to the
left of the large block visible in the photo.
Above - View north from Vengeance Peninsula. On the left is Green
Wattle Mountain (which can be traversed - but offers little in the way

exist onto Lacys Tableland as can be seen.
