NN2505 : The summit of The Cobbler

taken 22 years ago, 3 km from Ardgartan, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

The summit of The Cobbler.
The summit of The Cobbler.
The weird peaks of the Cobbler are the remnants of a hill that has suffered landslips. Large quantities of rock have slipped away leaving a chain of three distinctive peaks. Here the central and highest peak is being climbed by its usual cunning route. It is not a rockclimb, but requires nerve and a head for heights. The climber is on a ledge which is accessed by crawling through a hole in the peak. At the end of the ledge a scramble up blocks leads to the tiny summit.
