Cancho de La Bola, granite home of vultures. Better on large I feel.

Typical granite extravaganza. Favourite scrambling, rock-hopping and walking country, La Sierra de La Cabrera. This would have been on one of my very early walks here, when I was blown away by the granite forms. 100 + walks later and I still am!

This must be some of the best granite on the planet :-) A wonderfully detailed shot Andy!

Well, about 10 miles away is La Pedriza where the granite shapes are even more fantastic, all animal shapes, elephants, etc. But I don't go there; much too touristy with the hordes from Madrid. I got to know La Cabrera well (hardly any walkers or climbers at all!) and that is good enough for me!
Many thanks, Keith!

Granite is fantastic and also quite easy to climb... here we have schists, shapes are more agressive and very tricky to hike, if one does not know by instinct where it is solid to step...
As I told you over and over I would like to go there..

Granite and its fabulous forms of erosion, especially at altitudes with large thermal amplitudes and snow
Awesome image, Andy

In Portugal there are mountains of granite that get zoomorphic forms
