Where are these? In Scotland?

Snowden is the highest mountain in Wales and the three sisters are in Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands.

The southern Alps in new Zealand take some beating.

Yeah I'd love to go and take a look at the south island sometime.

 

It's shocking the number of people who've lived in the North Island their whole lives and have never been to the south. I reckon more people here have been to Oz than have been to the rest of their own country.

Guilty as charged, Australia and South Island of NZ have spectacular views. I should definitely see more of UK.

The Sayan Mountains near my home are my stomping grounds.

The view from the top of Snowdon was voted the best view in Britain this week apparently.

It beat the three sisters of Glencoe into second place.

And in third, The Triad in Bootle

It's deffo beautiful in an ugly kind of way 

 

I've got a mate who is obsessed with all that brutalist architecture, he's got pictures of it up all over his house, I find it quite fascinating to look at myself although I think there's an architecture thread for that you shower of bastards.

Sorry mate, didn't mean to hijack this thread, certainly not with the woeful gag i came up with anyway. 

 

I just have this uncontrollable urge to shoehorn Bootle based nonsense into most threads.

Did David Blunkett do the voting? Scandalous decision.

 

There's better views in the Lake District than from the top of Snowdon, I've not seen better views than from around Ben Nevis and Glencoe, though.

 

Absolutely sickening that my dodgy knees have kept me out of the mountains for so long.

Mount Rainer with Seattle in the foreground.

Viewing Mt Ranier from the Space Needle is just about the most incredible view I've ever witnessed. I could have stayed up there all day; as Miss _b said "It isn't fair, they have all the landscapes here."

 

All the landscapes and the Brothers Danner.

 

We also went to Mt.St Helens, which was a good hike. I studied it during GCSE Geography and to visit was an almost surreal experience.

 

Oh and we also went to Twin Peaks.

Mountains are cunts.  They think they're so big!  I'd stand up next to one of the nobheads and chop it down with the edge of my hand.  Yeah, I fucking would.

Aconcagua (22,838ft) from Valparaiso. The highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere.

I think this is the highest mountain you can trek up without climbing gear, I think it's about a three week up and down.

One for Mook...

 

Less than an hour ago I rolled into OMG sports bar on Koh Lipe, Thailand, looking for some footy, any footy would do.

 

Ordered a Leo, there were 5 Asians and 1 westerner in the whole place, grabbed my Leo, looked at the Western guy eating sausage and mash, (I think it was link sausage but that's for another thread) asked if I could sit down...

 

Before I'd even had time to contemplate his reply he hit me with...

"You a climber then?"

 

Before I could even deduce if he was Scottish or Irish, he repeated it.

 

"You a climber then?"

 

Now, those who know me off of the forum will know that I don't really look like a climber, if a climber even has a look.

 

But I replied anyway

 

"I am."

 

If I was Scottish or Irish I would have said "aye"

 

"How the fuck did you know I was a climber?"

 

"Your Montane shorts, I've got the same ones"

I don't think they do square sausage in Thailand.

 

What about these fuckers in Patagonia...
