I know this photo is very soft, I got the settings wrong, but if you look carefully you can see the streams of people climbing up the 1200 stairs to reach the top of this rock. There are some people on the top too.
Definitely not for the faint at heart- lol they'd be dead after the first flight! Impressive rock!

OMG definitely not for me! Presumably the stairs go round the back of the rock as I loose the people/stairs half way up lhs. It must be a good view once you get up there I suppose. I’ll wait to see someone’s photos! Lol!

Crikey this looks like a climb worse than my lighthouse climb

Lots of steps to the top. Such interesting geology.

My knees ache just looking at this!!!
January 11th, 2019  
And you climbed it too.................
January 11th, 2019  
I like the soft tones here, very cool!

I climbed it once too - I almost cant believe I did it. But, I was a lot younger then. Great rock, isn't it?

It's an impressive looking rock, but I think I'd pass on the climb, 1200 stairs is just a tad too much !

@olivetreeann I think I'd faint at the very sight of those stairs!

@pamknowler I assume so Pam, I didn't go up there and didn't think to ask. Yep, it would be a fabulous view but I'd never, ever get up there.

@gigiflower Mine too!!

@gilbertwood No way, I didn't go anywhere closer than the shot I posted with the dog in it. Not a chance that my undercarriage would get up the first little bit, let alone the 1200 steps.

@domenicododaro Thanks Domenico, you're very kind. A soft effect was not what I was aiming for. Sigh.
January 12th, 2019  
@jeneurell Oh wow, that's really a notable achievement. Yep, great rock, even from ground-level.

@golftragic someone told me once: aim whatever you wish, but love whatever you get!
January 12th, 2019  
Uf! I do not go to such places. Continuous pilgrimage! I do not see any pleasure in it. This is only counting places. That's why I prefer your picture. Nice shot.
January 12th, 2019  
My knees are shuddering at the very thought!
January 12th, 2019  
@golftragic 10 years ago I may have considered it for the shot- but now- well you know the answer to that!
January 13th, 2019  
@olivetreeann Twenty years ago, I might, might have done the same.
January 13th, 2019  
@fbailey Mine too.

@domenicododaro Climbing a whole bunch of stairs would never have come into my bucket-list Domenico. Back in my younger fitter days, stairs to the 7th floor (where my dentist was) was my limit and that's far short of 1200.

@haskar I couldn't agree more Haskar.
January 13th, 2019  
@golftragic I see! Honestly, I always had some pervert pleasure in climbing stairs (not that I ever climbed 1200, I admit)
January 13th, 2019  
That rock is simply breathtaking... and the 1200 steps even more so I guess ;-))
