You use Internet Explorer don't you? IE is the only browser that seems to accept uploads these days. Personally I use Firefox, so if I want to add a photo I have to use IE.

Not sure what you mean by pics and text though.


That may be my problem. I am using Chrome and I do not have that option that you refer to. I will try on IE. Cheers.

According to my topological maps on Garmin Basecamp, the wall of Vultures Retreat reaches 3200m? Not sure how accurate this is, though it seems to be well above 3000m.

I have a suspicion we are talking about different peaks - there is that peak with the massive gully separating it from Nkososana. It isn't named on the map and is too close to Nkososana to be a khulu (although perhaps can consider inclusion under the "horns" principal). I think that may be what you are referring to?

Vultures Retreat according to the maps is the ridge on the true left side of Nkososana Falls. The peak I refer to as Vultures Retreat is a little dome (no contour ring around it according to the map - probably why it wasn't on the original khulu list and probably won't end up on mine). I'll post a photo shortly.

The higher peak should be pretty cool - I need to spend a day or 2 in that valley - Dragon's Back and Mhlwazini (excuse the spelling) should both have awesome views - not to mention Cowl View, Champagne etc...

View inland from the peak I am refering to:

For some reason I took this photo - that lumpy little thing (actually looking at it I am starting to agree with its non-khulu status) is what I am referring to as Vulture Retreat:
