How did that route get that name? Jokes. Funny bits. Crag humour.

Didn't think this was possible (but there is a Wiki for rock balancing and all - so it must be true :wink:

Some form of glue - or photoshop - I imagine.

This is a cairn on the top of Mzimude Peak in the Southern Berg - notice that the base is an angled rock leaning on others. I have seen this a few times with these large cairns, but only in the Southern Berg.
