It's been a little while since my table made an appearance and I make no excuses for showing another shot of it! La Sierra de La Cabrera granite.

Abandoned in the late 19th century, it was active only for a few decades, with varying degrees of success.

Happy Accident.

I can't now remember how this came about but I liked it and tarted it up a bit in editing.

Passing over the Casa de Campo. An empty cabin passing the other way. I teach, or have taught, Business English at the top of all the tall buildings on the skyline.

A long way down!! III - Right Angle

09 Jul 2012 41 55 395
A very enjoyable corner crack climb which I did back in 1978. Right Angle is a famous climb at a modest HS E4 grade but that was near my upper limit and this was the best climb I had done at that time. What you see here is only the final third of the climb. The first two thirds comprise an interesting long traverse downwards to the foot of the crack. Gurnard's Head, Zennor, Cornwall

Moggaraz

22 Aug 2016 16 25 334
Moggaraz is a very pleasant (and touristy) town in the Sierra de Francia, Salamanca Province. All of Its 300 odd inhabitants in 1967 agreed to have their photos taken and large-scale paintings were taken from those photos and placed on the walls of their homes, some years later. Whether you find this strange or superb, it it is certainly different! Whoever pitched this concept to these naturally conservative and cautious country folk must have been a sales genius!

Granite can do this!
