In September 1993, Lynn Hill became the first person, male or female, to free climb The Nose route on El Capitan. In 1994 she upped the ante, by becoming the first to free climb the entire route in a single 24 hour period, beginning at 10:00 PM on September 19. The Free Nose and the Free Nose in a day remained unrepeated over 10 years after Hill's first ascents - despite numerous attempts by some of the best big wall climbers in the world.

An aviatrix and the first person to fly from Europe to New York.

At 30 miles a day, it would take months or years to paddle the entire California tidal shoreline.

You would have to be a water sprite or an oceanid.

you can see the shadow of the earth, or the twilight wedge, as the sun sets and the earth casts a shadow on the atmosphere.

15 minutes later, night falls.
