Superb mountain goating by Chris R. and Andy Young, searching out clumps of peas, particularly C. stefanii. I usually chuck my peas in the bin once they get furry and past the sell by date. What's that in the background growing out of the cliff on page 7. Cyphostemma ? cirrosum ?

Othonna cremnophila, which is the most interesting plant on that mountain. The guys are so absorbed by their conophytums that I think they ignored it!
