Is it my poor old eyes or is there an outline of a human face here?

Stunning shot Andy Y*. Is it a natural or man made face? That looks a little risky climbing there

It took them a while, Therese but they were very good. I was transfixed! I was a climber once too, although not quite at this level, and felt their every struggle.

Thank you all. Totally natural, Tone and yes, it looks like a guardian of the mountains from the age of giants!
I watched the climbers for an hour - from bottom to top. They seemed experienced but even so ...

A big face, Andy, seems almost scoplito and yet its form is natural. I see that there are climbers, we hope that do not tickle the nose, because if they are sneezing for their are trouble. ;-))
