I saw this picture here on the Internet with the caption "Somewhere in France ...". But we're with you this is not enough! The Truth? We need all the details, from all sides, and even to "get into it" desirable. So let's learn something interesting and we will look into my eyes.

Mont Egil, in English Mont Aiguille - a small top, located in the northern mid-latitudes of the eastern hemisphere, at coordinates 44.8333 ° North latitude, 5.55 ° East longitude. In terms of the geographical location of the vertex is characterized as follows: Eurasia (Europe), Western Alps, Dauphine Alps.

Mont Aiguille - «Unattainable Mountain", a height of 2 thousand meters, which sticks out like a finger with the same steep walls on all sides. this mountain long fired the imagination of the French, and at the request of Charles VIII, she was the first climbing height - the first mountain on which people choose to climb just like that, out of pure curiosity. Vertex has not been subdued to one thousand four hundred and ninety-two. The first ascent was involved, except the royal rati More kamnetёs, carpenter, and two priests - just in case - and suddenly the truth on this mountain God sits, legs dangling?

It was June 26, 1492, the year Columbus discovered America, Rabelais and then described it in his book Four.

To address the whole spectrum of logistics and organizational issues may require honest local knowledge. Is likely to require the organization of intermediate camps, but significant part of the route already mozhut be completed within one or two days of the assault.
