Vertical Sailing

Combining sailing and climbing in Greenland, this is a 5 part video series. This episode shows the 75 year old captain climbing a new route in Greenland. There’s a great view of a group of seals hunting in the ocean, directly below the climbers, at the 4:55 mark.

The most amazing part of this trip, to me, is having 5 people with all of their climbing gear on a 33 foot sailboat. I used to own a 40’ sailboat and I can’t imagine cramming all of the stuff they must’ve carried on that boat.
