HMS Victory's captain climbs mast
Not sure what the date on this is, but I thought it was kind of interesting.
"The commanding officer of HMS Victory demonstrated he has a head for heights as he climbed 205 feet up the main mast and straight into the history books.
Lieutenant Commander Oscar Whild is believed to be the Victory’s first captain to have ever scaled the mast to check the rigging and general condition of the ship’s fittings using rope access techniques normally used for caving activities."
