Above - Dawn - Axehead Mountain. Vengeance Peninsula is on the right

Above - Vengeance Peninsula and the "Bullaren Peaks" - Bull Island on the left and Bull Island Peak (Alchemy Mountain) on the right. Behind lies Lacys Tableland. Bul Island is a corruption of the aboriginal name - "Bullaren" according to Myles Dunphy.

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 of views - it is too low) and Lacys Tablelnd on the right. Many passes exist onto Lacys Tableland as can be seen.

Above - Gordon Thompson on the "razorblade" - the ridge that extends towards Lacys Tablelnd from Bull Island Peak. This is a truly amazing formation.

Above - This ridge heading north west off Axehead Mountain provides an easy route back towards Scotts Main Range and the Kowmung River. The main difficulty is getting off the second bump - down steep slopes of dirt (via the right hand side)
