Great photo! Can I aks you something? Do you know any mountains and also which is the group name of the mountains in the nearness of skiing area Valmeinier? I am asking you because I know you are expert for French Alps! :-) I am going to spend a week there and I am interesting about the mountains there!

Thanks for this explanation. Do you know where I can find any photos of this mountains on SP or maybe they have pages on SP? I was looking but without successes.

Unfortunately, most of these mountains do not have Sp page yet.

I am back from France and I have one question! In which group would you put Roche Noire and Les Aiguilles d`Arves? I will do the pages so that I know. :-)

Thank you so much for publicing these detailed photos. It is funny that I have been searching for a long time for more info about this magnificent face and a friend of mine has just pointed to me this NEW stuff only a few days before I am eventually able to go.
With 2-3 friends we are planning to be up there in a week time; Yeeeeeeeeaaaaaaa !
We do have a route discription in addtion but your photos illustrate very clearly the scale, geometry and difficulties of Schmid's route.
It would be nice to add more information about the route and if you have done it yourself you could draw
carefully the route line on the photos :o)
All the best
