Can someone ID this peak? On the Mont Blanc massif taken from Chamonix.

Possible to buy Via Ferrata gear in the Dolomites?

Is it easy enough to buy Via Ferrata gear in the Dolomites area?

Breath-taking shots of the Serra da Estrela, Portugal?

I'm making large photographic prints - fine detail - of the Serra da Estrela on large format film. Heavy delicate equipment limits me as to where I can get to. Any suggestion for breath-taking views much appreciated. Happy to give prints for successful suggestions. Collin
