They had a massive wood wheel that 6 or so monks would walk in and that would wind a sled full of granite up an almost vertical slop that was about 80m high. We think we're so clever these days but what these guys were able to do... And the fact they weren't daunted by the time it would take or the effort. Very inspiring.
