Crew Eye: From atop Gros Piton

From the heights of Gros Piton on St. Lucia, to under the waves, the crew of M/Y Pipe Dreams goes all out. Capt. Jared Burzler organized the climb late April and a local photographer captured the summit. Now the crew are famous, as Paradise St. Lucia bought the shot for a tourist map.

Capt. Burzler said the climb was much easier than the smaller Piton, “but in no way was it easy at 2,500-feet (250 flights up) and 14,500 Apple steps.”

Crew in peak photo are from left back row, Dave Moloney, Tina Fox, Krystal Fanning, Dani Devaux, and from left front row, Robert Mitchell, Jared Burzler and Elena Rastelli.

Now the crew can say they have climbed both Pitons, Capt. Burzler wrote.
