Climbing Spray Ice Helmcken Falls
Date: 5th April 2015
I HAD won a 2010 Golden Piton award when Tim Emmett AND I climbed the spray ice wall near the 463-foot Helmcken Falls in British Columbia. WE named the route “Spray On” and gave it a grade of WI10—three grades higher than the world’s previous hardest ice climb. When OUR picks entered the icicles there, it felt like swinging into hard Styrofoam that could lose its structure at any moment. In the video here, you can watch us climbing the route.
