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.
