This is a closer view of the climbers at the top of Tom's Thumb. It looks like the person at the top is tending to the rope lines to help other climbers, with one of the other climbers just below the top.
There are several rock climbing gyms in the area for people to practice their skills, but certainly climbing rocks and mountains such as Tom's Thumb requires a lot of skill and conditioning.
Every once in a while the news will carry reports of people rescued by the mountain rescue teams.
This week we have photos of Blarney Castle, Ireland, this week posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
