blt2ski will become famous soon enough
Not sure I understand the 12 or 13 rated climbs, IIRC it was a 5.something that was the tough ones?!?! or was it 6, 7 or 8? long ago. I was told as a teen to not climb, but I did anyway..............oh well, life goes on......come to think of it, I was told not to run in track and cross country either. did both........never was told not to sail, ski or otherwise..............

Prusik peak locally is a fun climb, fall one way, 2000' down, 3000' the other way to prusik lake in the Enchantment lake region. Great view at 7K maybe 8K or so......have to look that one up!

here you go prusik peak

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

I wish I could sail during the week so I could get through the classes more quickly, but I guess I need to take time to study.

I went back to the marina and shot some boat porn (thanks Sara) this afternoon at lunch. I know it's hard to get a concept of size, but check out the dude walking on the back mast (probably some term I don't know for the back mast yet). The Masts are visible form miles away. Probly not a daysailor...

Wow,
I guess they need the sat communications station on the mizzen to communicate with the crew working the main!
