Typo in Name

Looking at the map I don't know why this crag was named 'Barques'. It exists a bay called Barques but it is located near Pollença. I assume the B is a typo and changed it to V as displayed on Google Maps and OSM.

The dualism of the phonemes "b" and "v" is not uncommon in Castellano vs. Catalan/Mallorquin. Probably both is correct. But sticking to the spelling in OSM/GM definitely makes sense.

You're right. Looking at the maps of the Instituto Geográfico Nacional the MTN25 map says "Barques" and at the bigger scale MTN50 "Varques". Wow their air/satellite photos are much better than Googles satellite layer. MTN200 "Varques"
