Wow, how many times did she go up that mast? I lost count reading her journal. Well, as they say, "mad dogs and englishmen". That kind of sailing is beyond my endurance and strength level, much less my mental capacities.
I went to her website, but couldn't find what kind of mast climbing system she uses. It appears from her writing that she might be using a version of the ATN Top Climber.
What worries me most is that most often one would go up the mast to repair a broken halyard, so why trust yourself to the strength of a halyard when going up?
