Harnesses? Looks like North Wales slate quarries, about 1880!

Can't help wondering if the via ferrata in the Dolomites were made under similar conditions if 'safety'.... Roll Eyes IP: 81.108.217.215

Without checking the link, I know that it has to be Mt Huashan. The path is something else. I'm very interested in certain via ferrata, El Caminito Del Ray in particular, but I can't see myself ever going onto the path at Huashan. Slightly worrying is that this is considered something of a Family pilgrimage to the Old temple atop the Mountain. Blink Blink Blink

Personally, I think you're batshit crazy if you do it, but hats off to you if you return to tell the tale.

Hmm, El Caminito Del Ray, I kind of want to do that as it is, but I think they're due to start major refurbishment of it imminently.

whatever this world is likely to run out of, it probably isn't Chinese.. and they probably know that....

He knew the magic monotony of existence between sky and water: the criticism of men, the exactions of the sea, the prosaic severity of the daily task, because there is nothing more enticing, disenchanting, and enslaving than the life at sea.

Return flights from Leeds to Malaga for the weekend of the planned Derbyshire trip £67.

Rain, wind and grotty little holes in Derbyshire or sun, sand & sangria on the Costa del Sol.

I could be convinced! Laugh

Last I read, the Rescession had slowed up any plans for refurbishment. IIRC, it was scheduled for the back end of this year.

I am hoping to get to do it next year, I'll give a shout out nearer the time if anyone else fancies heading over for a weekend.

Where, China or Spain? Shocked I might be up for a bit of that!
