Re: Congrats of pic of the...

Yes, Gillett lists about a score of them, from 5.8 to 5.14a and 5.7 A4. Glacier Ridge, to the right of The Flying Dutchman, should be a class 4 scramble. The summit tower from the Loft is either class 4 or 5.4.

Re: vedo che

Da circa un anno alterno. La "macchinina" pesa meno della metà dell'altra e non ingombra, per cui la si può usare anche arrampicando senza problemi. Peccato che manchi di mirino (ha solo lo schermo a cristalli liquidi) sicché spesso ho un'idea solo approssimativa di che cosa sto fotografando.

Re: Wow

Thanks! It is not as good as Dreamweaver (congratulations for your ascent!), but it's very good nonetheless.

It's unlike any other I've ever seen of the Ship's Prow.
