On Ben Arthur (Summit)
On Ben Arthur (Summit)
This curious rock is the true summit of Ben Arthur, most popularly known as The Cobbler. To reach the top one must set off from the left and crawl through a hole to reach the south side of the rock (right hand side in this photograph).This is often referred to as 'threading the needle' There is then a narrow sloping ledge to negotiate with a large drop of around 100 feet to reach the summit. The return is via the same way. Do not attempt if the weather is bad or you have a fear of heights.
