Crewman reaching for a carabiner to clip himself to the ratlines (rope ladder) as he climbs up the mizzen mast to make a repair onboard the Japanese training ship Kaiwo Maru, a 4-masted bark, docked at Steveston pier, British Columbia
I am not a big fan of heights, so this gave me some butterflies while studying the photo details. Even though he has the carabiner, I just don't think I could do that. Interesting name for the rope ladders. I learned something new today. Thanks. Great shot!
