impressive tower - might be in the Dolomites, except that it looks like a different type of rock!

Re: A very

Yes Ejnar - very similar to the Dolomites - this rock is a hard Cambrian limestone that has been pushed up over younger rock by a long fault. Good climbing - mostly 5.4 with the odd move up to 5.6
