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...

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

blt2ski 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

dkspencer Try hot water over fresh ginger or ginger tea. The patch works well too.

smackdaddy Yeah. I used to be pretty hardcore (13a/b on limestone) - but have backed off due to elbows getting kind of whacked. My wife was also a cranker (12+). These days, we're doing 10/11 and just enjoying it.

Our 9 year old just sent his first 9 on top rope. Now THAT was cooler than just about anything!

I know there are a couple other climbers on SN. Look in OT - I'll start a BFS thread for climbers. What the hell?

I still have yet to see a Catalina 27 up close, so I can't make a judgment call yet.

Yea, he sent a 5.15d called Es Pontas in Spain... Sick climbs.

Es Pontas is an arch rock off the coast of Mallorca... He Deep Water Solos it (basically no rope over the water, you fall, you go in the drink... The trailer for it is awesome, I think anyone would appreciate it, but maybe more-so sailors and other water lovers King Lines Trailer (youtube)

Sorry to go off topic... rock-climbing is my current passion, sailing on its way up there. Smackdaddy, do you climb?
