Nope - that's granite. Those insane sounding Cicadas sound like somewhere further north as well.

While we're trundling, here's one from Sonnie Trotter's blog:
Finally, for today, here is a clip I was sent of three Squamish locals removing a dangerous rock on Birds of Prey on the Squaw. It’s a good reminder that just because something is big, does not mean it’s “safe”. Be cautious out there, and DO NOT drop rocks without doing all the background work necessary, this group had people on the ground for public safety. Use the internet, chat rooms, billboards, climbing shops, the works. PLEASE PLEASE BE SAFE. Too many close calls that were NOT necessary are behind us, so please use common sense, we’ll all do the same. Have fun. Climb ON. BOO-YA.

I'm back - but the others are still over there (I had 3 weeks off, they had 5). I'm doing my photos this week, but will need to wait for the others to get back to make the combined gallery.

I can't believe they killed that lovely tree in the process. Surely they could have rigged it to fall away from it?

Would have made a nice bit of shade....
Probably have a few people up in arms about the destructive nature of climbers if the vid ended up being viewed by park rangers and the likes.

Sonny trotters method could perhaps be the solution to the firewood collection at Arapiles. I am aware of an old tree on the first pitch of Introductory route/siren which would supply the pines with enough wood to last many six month fire seasons.

I think the video could be Mount Larcom

I agree it looks like granite.
I agree it is a 'bad look' to trundle such things, especially if you need to take a jack/s in with you to achieve that task.
I disagree it is Mt Larcom, as Mt Larcom (Qld) is limestone.
