...take your time 8-)
just add some photos and you have an awesome page. Send me a PM when photos are added and you have a 10.
putting all of this together, congratulations! Great deal of valuable information you have given. My only remark would be about the low-res photos. If you don't have hi-res ones (some seem to be scanned), that's okay, but if it's possible, it would be nice to have better quality ones.
You must have spent a long time on this. Congrats on a comprehensive and well written page that's deservedly amongst the "currently featured" front page items.
With so much material to wade through, I wonder if readers might not benefit from some kind of tabular summary at the beginning or end of the article?
Did you live in Albania, or do you have any special connections with this country ? The low-res pictures suggest that most of them were taken with argentic old camera, then that you have long-time acquaintance with the area...
The Albanian mountains, the unknown piece of the Dinaric between Montenegro and Greece, look really gorgeous... Let's hope that this country will continue its progress on the democratic side and get closer to the rest of Europe, as Croatia did and Montenegro is doing.
Awesome compilation of rare and obscure material. Information about Albania is so scarce so I cannot but admire the effort. You must have spent considerable time there. I only had limited opportunity to explore Albania which in my experience is very difficult without a car. Congratulations once again for a great job!
well done on producing an interesting, informative and mouth watering introduction to Albanian mountains.
Nice and solid information great input for summit post.
Just one clarification the Korab Summit (Golem Korab) is located in Republic of Macedonia but there is a route from Albanija. However due to the excellent cooperation between both countries there is no problem climbing on Korab from both sides.
I enjoyed your report and the tour of Albania. Thanks. I especially liked how you linked the photos to the maps thats a great idea.
a note of thanks for the encouraging comments, and also especially the suggestions on improvements and polite corrections. I've tried to incorporate all these suggestions on improvements and corrections into the text.
This is incredibly well-written and the pictures are terrific! I only wish the published guidebooks on the more frequented mountain ranges were this good. I'm salivating at the thought of the many first ascents that will find their way into updated versions of this guide as climbers take advantage of the wealth of information you've provided. Well Done!
Terrific text and interesting pix - thanks for sharing!
