90-year-old graffiti on one of the vanes of the Mt Tumanang trig marker, NSW. A quick web search revealed that Harold Tozer was just a 17 yo lad from a nearby Jerangle farm when he carved his name into peakbagging history. Remaining a bachelor, he died in 1965. He deserves a page (2020-09-05). Photo by Ashley Watson.

Ascents mostly complete and accurate from 2015 onwards. Longstanding interest in topography and orography. I love poring over maps and exploring routes up obscure, named peaks, big (rarely) or small (commonly). Mostly concentrating my time and effort in the ACT and elsewhere in Australia. Have added just about every named peak in the ACT. Am also interested in toponymy and toponomastics - hence, for example, my "Sugarloaf peaks of Australia" and "Matthew Flinders peaks" lists. I'm also into confluences, having now bagged two firsts: 24S 129E and 23S 129E (www.confluence.org). Happy to be contacted by those with similar passions.
