"Track on volcanic slope, Lanzarote" from simon3 Expand pics
Track on volcanic slope, Lanzarote (Expand pics)
re Vulcano, Sicily
Brenno, fascinating stuff. I have come to appreciate the sparse beauty of volcanic landscapes in the Canaries and can immediately relate to the rock shapes in your picture. I have an ambition to see molten lava in the process of bubbling and running around some day, be it Hawaii, Iceland or indeed Sicily.
On Paul Tempan's walk along Sallagh Braes and north of there on Sat we walked along a huge scarp defined by a huge volcanic outpouring millions of years old and so weathered that it sort of looks more like the usual landscapes in Ireland.
The photo here has some of the much more recent (geologically speaking) rocks of a place near Femés in Lanzarote. Unremarked and not so remarkable on that island, but a riot of clashing colours and textures compared to Ireland.

Incidentally you wouldn't happen to have a GPS track for your perambulations around Vulcano?

The Eagles Rock: A short but sweet scramble

One of the few Irish summits that needs the use of hands by the easiest route. Those happy with exposure can get a good airy scramble (grade 2, pushing 3 maybe), by slanting left up an obvious ram...

Slieve Foye: Irish Gabbro!

Gabbro is one of the roughest and most frictiony rocks around and is superb for scrambling on, as all visitors to the Skye Cuiilin across the water know. I never realised until yesterday that Slie...

Clermont Carn: Easy but a great view.
IainT a day ago.
If you drive up the road this has to be a contender for the easiest summit in Ireland, but it's well worth doing for the superb view. Wicklow to Donegal, with the Meath lowlands spread out like a ...
