For detailed info + reports for many climbing areas and mountains in France and French-speaking Switzerland, CampToCamp.org is like MountainProject for many areas in USA. Sometimes called C2C for short.

Not surprisingly most of the descriptions and reports about routes in France are by French climbers, written in the French language.

Six months ago I posted my first trip report ("Sortie") in English.

The website software makes this easy, but who knew how the actual French-speaking community and moderators might respond. Well ...

My user ID on C2C did not get blasted out of existence. Did not get put into a special restricted status. One person responded that he was glad to see somebody posting in English.

So I posted two more reports in English. Months went by, and still I was not blasted out of existence.

Today I wanted to post another trip report for a route, but the route did not yet exist on CampToCamp. So I took it to the next level and created my first Route ("Itineraire") on C2C in English.

We'll see what response this might trigger.

Now I notice that CampToCamp does have four English-language discussion forum -- separate from the many French-language forums. Not much activity.

Also I noticed that someone posted in French, also in English, on one of the separate German-language forums on CampToCamp -- looking for climbing partners near a German-speaking location.
