Well, Dan called me "Italian climbing star" in a caption of his, and I felt compelled to outdo him in flattery. The bit on Dan's rope is, rather obviously, an inside joke.

Love the caption. Spot on. Glad you were able to note that this was a 69, not 70m rope. It is special edition, to save some weight! HA! Gracie!
