Spot the climbers

Spot the climbers 

El Cancho Largo (The Guardian of the Mountains), La Sierra de La Cabrera. Mondalindo is the hulking massif in the background and Penelara (the highest peak in the Sierra de Guadarrama) is in the far distance to the left.
In all honesty I didn't see the climbers until I uploaded the photo later that night! They must have been very quiet for climbers, especially Spanish climbers!
Another day, other climbers - at the overhang crux, www.ipernity.com/doc/2247598/46031006/in/album/1034386
Sight and sound, because I like it! Tim Buckley, 'Get On Top' from Greetings From L. A. (1972).

November 26, 2011. It was perishing!!!!!
A biting wind meant that I didn't hang around and take more photos. If I had, I might have seen the climbers BEFORE I got home and uploaded!!! :o)
Thanks Elaine!

2011 was OK (but I was between girlfriends) and I wasn't around in the year 121, but I'll take your word for it, Fred!

Sorry if I have flattened your nose, Marj!
Go straight down from the nose to the mouth area and the leading climber is wearing a fetching blue top. Directly below him, waiting their turns, at about chin level are his (or her) climbing partners.

Thank you, George. That climb with the overhang crux (I have photos of it posted a few moths ago, I'll try and find one to give you a link - different day and climbers) would always have been beyond my capabilities although because I went rock-climbing a lot in my teens and twenties, I am full of respect for those of a higher standard than I could ever reach!

A beautiful scene and well considered composition. A clever musical link. Somewhere I have one or possibly two cd's by Tim Buckley.....must have a search :-)

I'll have to change my notes. On holiday I woke up one night with a start as I suddenly remembered that my 'Live at the Whisky-a-go-go' albums were by Johnny Rivers and not Tim Buckley at all! Sorry!

OK at 2048 pixels, I think I see two people. One at the top with a red helmet and blue shirt, and one at the bottom with a white shirt. If correct, I have no idea how they can hang in there or how the got there (pretty scary stuff-- not fun in the least!)
