Thanks chaps: yes it's natural the geological history goes something like this:

A long long time ago the mountains in this part of the world were as high as the himalayas are now, but time and erosion wares everything down in time and now we're left with just the very strongest pieces of rock remaining no more than a couple thousand feet above sea level.

So the distinctive piles of granite on top the hills here are the just the strongest stumps of those mountains that have been left behind as all else is eroded away.

Formations like this are left behind as the cracks between plates of granite open up due to erosion. These rocks have been like this for so long there's no danger of them slipping BTW, generations of people have already climbed all over formations like these without harm :-)

You're right though, I missed the obvious comedy shot of me holding up the rock! Doh!

John.
