Mount Arapiles, Australia, is an extremely good place to climb due to the
nature of the rock and the warm climate. It is also a beautiful, red pile of

Yosemite, California, is the Mecca of climbers. It has the highest
and largest rock walls, some ranging up to one and half kilometers of
completely vertical face. Climbing these walls may take as long as a
week, or even a month in some cases. Better pack lots of water and
food! The next picture is not from the most typical walls, it shows
the strangely formed Half Dome mountain.
I'm also interested in finding strange rock formations. Here's one
from east coast of Australia.
In Hawaii, you can see Lava, even the red hot stuff (see a separate
story). But even if the
lava is no longer hot, you can see the ages of different flows
very clearly, as in this picture from the Big Island:
