Two climbers on the south face of Berchtesgadener Hochthron
Photo taken on November 14th, 2010. It wasn't until I heard a very loudly pronounced four-letter word coming from the wall that I noticed them. How handy that can come in sometimes...;-))

My grandparents spoke this mix of Czech and German. It was common in that time (born late 1890s), and they lived on the border with Austria.

every language has some special words for very special occasions... Polish one is very well known wherever I roam, you don't even have to start with it, local people noticing you're Polish will immediately surprise you with that:))) It's so fucking nice...hehe

Great climbing shot.

...just out of interest, as I don't happen to be a climber myself: How would you rate this particular pitch, as to difficulty?

As far as I am concerned and as I am not a professional climber I would bet ...it seems to be rather vertical so fairly f....ing difficult!

Have a nice evening

What would be the grade of this? VI? VII? Higher than that? I'm using the UIAA standards here, but I don't mind American numbers, either...there is a comparison table on the Internet.

i wouldn't want to say what in italian would be called a "fesseria", but i would dare say it must be quite higher than a UIAA grade VI, but as i am not able to climb much higher than that i can't say more.
