'cracking photo' of The Cobbler. What is a
cobbler? Is that the same as a baker? Or,
does it have to do with horses?
Look at that cloud hanging overhead. Awesome!
Okay, it's a shoemaker! This rocky outcrop
must bear a resemblance to a cobbler's bench!
I learned something! Great job, Stephen !!!
It sure was a 'cracking day' we had on The Cobbler, no lightning in sight. Had been before but hadn't climbed onto the summit rock, so was glad to do so. You're right, it does have a resemblence to a cobbler's bench when viewed from the correct angle.
It doesn't look that hard, but I'm sure it's pretty gutsy climbing up there without ropes and gear.
Thanks. It is fairly straightforward on a nice day, but still a little bit nerve racking!
Great shot of the Cobbler. The day we were there we had sun, rain and snow--in late May! Turned back from a ropeless climb 15 feet short of the south summit as snow made thing rather greasy.
Had a day with that type of weather here in late April 06. Actually had snow in June on a summit here this year. Got to love that Scottish weather! Cheers for the vote.
