Victorian climbers from the late 1950s/early 1960s

Anyone know/knew Charles Roxburgh, Lloyd Lobbe or Peter Davis (or Davey)

The VCC has received an enquiry about the identity of a Victorian climber on the first winter ascent of the South Peak of Mount Geryon in Tasmania, 8 August 1960. We have a picture of Geoff Shaw, George Glover, and Bruce Naylor on the summit. The fourth man in the photo is thought to be Charles Roxburgh, Lloyd Lobbe or Peter Davis (or Davey).

I can share the photo with anyone who wants a look to see if they know the person. Tried to insert the photo but kept getting the suspicion link message

The next Argus will have an interesting article telling the history of the ascent from a climber who knew these guys.

Look at the relevant section in Michael Meadows extensive blog ‘The Living Rock’. The story of the first full winter traverse of Geryon is more complex than you may think and involved a number of accomplished Queensland climbers as well as Victorians. Could still be a bit of debate regarding the ascent of the highest peak vs ascents of the full traverse? Is it possible that the climber ‘who knew’ is a Queenslander? Perhaps with the initials PC?
