Change the title please

You could have titled your photos of Eperon Sud du Grand Capucin with different sentences including: face, number of pitch, height, grade... Thanks.

Re: Change the title please

Hi Diego,

thats a good recommendation.


1.) unfortunately I don´t speek French (and barely English, since I am native German speaker) and I just took the words from Michel Piola´s Guide book "le Topo du Massif du Mont Blanc" which we used for our climb - and it is in French

2.) since it is quite a while ago that I climbed the route I cannot remember what pitches I have covered; also I submitted only a small selection of all photos I took

3.) if I or everybody who submitts photos to SP would have to do this it would take much more time and effort as it is right now; I submitted more than 160 photos in less than a month and you know how time-consuming the scanning work is, don´t you?

4.) I will update the relevant photos with some more information based on the Guide book - unfortunately with the French scale for difficulties.

Hope this helps,

Regards Bernhard
