Inazone's Hole
Further to my comment on the strange hole in the rock feature raised by Inazone (June 5) by chance, because I wasn't looking for it, I came across it yesterday as a result of taking a different route along Binnian ridge than the usual and going to the west of the tor outcrop known as the Back Castles (which incidentally are among the most magificently sculpted outcrops in Mourne; it's like scambling through a Henry Moore - worth taking time to explore). There it was - the great mega-boulder has been incorporated into a wall that runs across the mountain from the Silent Valley reservoir (GPS ref: 31917;23757 to be very precise!). Having seen it 'in the flesh' I am pretty certain now that it is as I surmised, an eroded drusy cavity in the granite. The boulder has obviously been pulled off the outcrop by the passing ice and dumped down the slope. Interest aroused I kept looking; there are quite a few such hollows - this picture shows a lovely pair of water-filled 'goblets' in a boulder at the North Tors
