Rocks are big

A climber on a large rock face

One thing that really impressed me while climbing is how BIG rock faces are. Until there’s a person to give them context, it’s hard to comprehend.

This is another example of the ‘holy crap, rocks are huge’ effect. Also, check all the fossils on the lower left!

P.S. I promise that my blog isn’t JUST going to have climbing pictures on it.

Just a few.

    Cheers Henk

    • Hi Henk, I don’t know what a KML file is but I suspect I can guess! What Stefan is climbing here is just a boulder – a massive one – which has fallen down from the cliffs above (well, I assume that’s how it got there).
