does anyone here has an idea how to recreate a mountain like the one on the right side of the image?: http://www.gleich-wieder-da.de/wp-content/gallery/textbilder-coppercanyon/Berg.jpg

The mountain almost looks like one huge and harsh rock with a few ledges, where vegetation can grow and I would love to use such mountains in WM but sadly I failed to recreate them so far.

I hope someone has an idea :)
