Good Morning UKC

If anyone wants a quick challenge or would just like a relaxing vicarious flight from the comfort of your chair, here's a wee aerial vid I've cobbled together from pre-lockdown footage featuring some of the UK's rock climbing crags and mountains. Most of these featured crags, mountains and mountain ranges are quite well known, but a few would be classed as esoteric just to make it a bit more tricksome...

Anyway there are 19 individual clips relating to 19 crags, mountains or mountain ranges so see how many you can identify from this unique perspective. If you want the correct answers then just let me know and I'll post them on this thread later this week.

Thanks a lot for posting! What a great series. really enjoyed it, heartbreaking these days, but very uplifting*

Can you P-L-E-A-S-E add one of Cloggy, one of Gogarth, and one of the Pass? Thanks........

Edit 1, I've just realized no. 13 is in the Pass with Dinas Mot, as noted by someone above. And I've only been there about a zillion times in the past many decades...... *Edit 2, that was an unintentional joke

Steve and Gordon's lists cover most of it, agree with DaveHK on the last 2.

Black Mountain rather than Pen y Fan, looking west from above Fan Brycheiniog.

Guessing the river is the Spey upstream of Newtonmore, but it is a guess!

Yes, just east of Mar Lodge, I reckon. 

And No. 11 is Caerfai Bay?

A superb effort Gordon and you have 13 absolutely spot on and being benevolent I would give you an additional half a point for number 18 giving you a grand total of 13 1/2!

Cheers
