Did you try that nearby ladder?

The same popular footpath seen from one of the hills around:

Max, I kept walking on that easy footpath, but if you mean the ladder further down – originally leading to heaven – I tried it, yes.

I think it is quite Radical! Could have been a setting for a King Arthur movie?

But I am curious whether those crags are come 500 km mislocated?

Seemingly much in common with my last place!

Look's like Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh, Scotland.

Nice follow up to NDR's challenge.  I was in Edinburgh a couple of years ago - still took me a while to work it out.

Well, Hans, actually it was already your very first picture that was immediately identified by Google, even showing this scene as the very first entry. Took just a few more clicks to find the precise name of that rock.

Could have been a 5-minutes challenge, lol, but this time I decided to better keep my mouth shut!

Never been there, but I enjoyed this little video of a walk up there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IO1zRL1zsAg

Btw, nice idea to find this place with the same name (but in a different location) as the one from a previous challenge!

When I checked my first photo, the answer was glaciokarst with a variety of examples.

Arthur's Seat is not the exact answer to my question but Salisbury Crags.

As we are at the end of GTP 220 I leave it as it is.
