woooooooooooooooooooow! They're kind to warn!!!!

©polytropos on June 27, 2008

Yes, stylished chicks has to be warned everywhere as a lot of experiences showed us ...

antorenz on June 27, 2008

moreover, the shoe in the sign semms to have some problem... has a strange shape! Maybe they mean: better avoiding broken shoes....

©polytropos on June 27, 2008

I think, because of the strong sun beams the black color on the sign is flaked off.

What it means? A mi me parece que prohiben pasar a mujeres (o hombres[travelos]) que calcen zapatos negros de tacon. Greetings, Luis Duro.

©polytropos on June 27, 2008

Not bad interpreted, Luis. It says, that it will be a difficult hiking down the hill and it will be advantageous to wear convenient shoes.

© LDG on June 27, 2008

Ahhh, this is the first time that I see this signal. Greetings.

No,no,Poly ,this sign mean that you have to wear this kind of shoes to hiking down this mountain.Obligatory! ;D

The question is, how was it possible to reach this point by wearing these shoes...

russianrachel on June 28, 2008

If you're crazy enough to try and go down in those shoes I don't think the sign would stop you!

Incredible, the whole life in the mountain and it is the first time that I see this sign. A plaudit because it is necessary. Greetings from Galicia, Moncho.

Wim de Vries on June 28, 2008

Very nice polylike-photo, with this sign :-)

@ Roland it's possible to reach this point on high heels by cable-car as poly did :-)

Greetings, Wim

Polydieses Schild müsste auch bei uns aufgestellt werden. War Gestern auf dem Tromsdalstind, ist wirklich kaum zu glauben mit welchem Schuwerk die Kreutzfahrt Touristen da unterwegs sind. Juergen

Wrong! There's nothing to do with mountain climbing but with (probably Noah's) yacht anchored just right of there... and its codex !

le vorrei vedere con quelle scarpe su in montagna... molto spiritosa saluti ©gibroks

©polytropos on July 8, 2008

Ciao, ©gibroks. You would be astonished in what kind of shoes some people tumbling around at that place.

Da kann man noch so viele Schilder aufstellen... Wirkungsvoller wäre sicher ein saftiger Aufpreis für nicht angemessene Ausrüstung, wenn die Bergrettung anrücken muss.

Juergen Norge on January 28, 2009

Gudrun da hast du Recht aber auch das schreckt niemanden wirklich ab. Bei uns hatte jemand als abschreckung diese Idee. Erklärung in meinem Kommentar zum Bild. Hilsen Juergen

©polytropos on January 28, 2009

Man muss ehrlicherweise sagen, dass natürlich die meisten Touris (oft auch höchst bergunverträgliche Exemplare) direkt aus dem Hotel mit der Seilbahn hochkommen und nur die Aussicht bewundern. Das Schild ist nur für jene Euphoriker unter ihnen, die ob des herrlichen Panoramas und der markierten Wanderwege glatt ihr mangelhaftes Schuhwerk vergessen.
