11 Days On A Wall, Starting From A Deck Of A Sailboat

More of the “Vertical Sailing” series about a 3 month climbing trip to Greenland. (The whole series is here.) In this – the 2nd - episode, they start an 11-day big wall climb right from the deck of their boat. The first episode is getting to Greenland and loading the boat. The 3rd episode, I posted the other day. The 4th episode shows them pushing icebergs out of the way so they can get to a wall where they climb two separate routes to the summit and have an overnight “shiver bivvy.” The last episode is about their two week-long sail back to Scotland, including heaving-to (the boat and the sailors.)
