Not sure why English grades when it's a glacier access and quite a serious place if weather changes on you. And routes on The Brevent are given Alpine Grades!?

Ben, why is Contamine given a British grade? we're not in Britain! (It's wrong anyway, it's E2 5c)

Strange to give most of the routes their alpine grades but O Sole Mio a French grade? Could always put the French grade in the description. No big deal, just for consistency and ego stroking purposes :P
