Moments: Andrew Fisher / John Howe : Climbing

1) Singing Rutter's Choral works in the van. Enthusiasm is an effective substitute for aesthetic quality.

2) Relishing the chance to burn stress in cheerful physical concentration.

3) Comparing "ouches" after a bungled climb.

4) Laughing when our hands were to tired to undo knots that we had fallen on 3-4 times.

5) Sitting on our bouldering pad thinking about pie.

* We were given this problem in Trigonometry, and it is not difficult to solve with the Trigonometric functions... I am currently attempting to solve the problem using a modified form of proportionality.

Given that:

Angle A is 14 degrees.

And that Angle D is 34 degrees.

And that the cumulative length of the base of the triangles X and Y is 30 feet,

Find the lengths of the bases (i.e. the relative lengths of the constituent parts of 30) for the triangles X and Y.

After a trigonometry test on tuesday, and an organic chemistry test this morning, friday's appointment with genetics will be hard to bear gracefully.

I press towards the mark.
