The 1st, 2nd and 3rd letters spell a very good athlete.

The 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th form an object that can be used in the mountains.

The 4th, 5th and 6th spell a utensil used at school or at work.

And the 5th, 6th and 7th are the same every year.

What is the word we are looking for?

Hint :

This word is not very common nowadays.

The next one is here.


propend = pro + rope + pen + end


A pro is a professional athlete
you use ropes to climb mountains
you use pens both in schools and in offices
each year ends the same (31 of december)
