"... high altitude mountaineering up to 4,000m".

Is 4,000 metres really high altitude? Whilst I'm not saying that 4,000 metre peaks are easy, as an altitude limit it seems to lack ambition and as a categorisation of high altitude it seems just plain wrong.

Course, it might just be me. But in this case, I don't think so.

& if they are only 'good' up to 4000m, the Mont Blanc GV isn't suitable for the mountain its named after!

Why did they stop making the green Runouts?
