Abstract

In a paper read before the Society in 1912 on the
Height of Ben Lomond, the claims of Barn Bluff to be
higher than its neighbour. Cradle Mountain, were referred
to, and in a sketch map of the latter district made by
Franz Malcher in 1914 the height of Barn Bluff is placed
as between 5,135 feet and 5,200 feet.
At Christmas, 1915. a party, consisting of Professor
Flynn, Dr. W. N. Benson, L. Rodway, C.M.G., Dr. Rodway,
E. Maxwell, A. V. Giblin, A. Garnett, and the
writers, spent several days in the vicinity of Cradle Mountain,
and whilst Professor Flynn ard Messrs. W. N. Benson,
L. Rodway, and Dr. Rodway each spent their time
in examining the biological, geological, and botanical features
of the district, the writers decided to attempt to
settle the disputed point as to the height of Barn Bluff.
