Lets forgive them the odd error. After all, your average punter on that route is unlikely to have those pages stuffed down his shirt!
Photos look superb - my only issue is that this ups the ante significantly for the area. It definitely isn't a new Rebuffat (that would be unfair on Monsieur Batoux and the photographers) and , for mere chubby mortals like me, the top 65 seem out of reach, rather than the top 35.
