Not one for the vertigo sufferers. A grand view for those that can take it. The spots in the water are mostly large rocks.

Breath taking view.

Hello Mirko, yes 580m down, seems a long drop. Very happy you like this in spite of it making you giddy.

I return your wish for a tranquil Advent too, Herb

Herb clara has told me its also a lovers leap. not a place to drink wine on a dark night HIC... but wow what a view.steve

Herb Riddle on January 2, 2012

Frightening Steve. Nice solid wall up here at least, but only about 1meter high. (No second chance if someone should take that leap though!) Thanks for the visit. Hope Clara enjoyed these photo's too.

Cheers, Herb
