English: People climb the indoor rock climbing wall at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. The wall features auto belay devices. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Visual Description:  An experienced climber trying to guide a novice.

BEAAT  =  ABATE,  GAIME  =  IMAGE,  GENNIB  =  BENIGN,  CIYPAR  =  PIRACY   —   Giving us:  TEAGIGPR

Clue/Question:  After his climbing companion started to panic, he told her to . . .

Answer:  GET A GRIP

(Cute!  Very punny, as some would say.  All the clue words were nicely jumbled.  I struggled a little getting “benign”, and I didn’t find “piracy” all that easy either.  Surprisingly, “image” is a new clue word for us Jumblers.  ralis95 will have to add it to his clue word database.  Nothing obvious about the answer letter layout, and that is always a positive, in my book.  And, the cartoon conveys everything very clearly.  Not a big head scratcher, or anything, but a solid puzzle.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy birthday to some of my all-time favorites:  Frank Robinson – 77, Van Morrison – 67 and Glenn Tilbrook – 55!     YUR

    No way will I ever climb a rock wall or a real rock wall for that matter. I do, however, want to parasail. BENIGN wasn’t too hard to get, but I did have to back into PIRACY. Last day of August today…ahhhh, the summer is waning.
