Everyday - Sarah Hueniken Climbs Mushashi (M12)

At a rating of M12, Musashi is one of the hardest mixed routes in Canada. Ten years ago, Outdoor Research Ice Climbing Ambassador and ACMG Alpine Guide Sarah Hueniken saw a video of the route being climbed by renowned climbers Will Gadd and Ben Firth. In March of 2013, she ventured into Alberta's Cineplex Cave and climbed it herself, becoming the first North American woman to successfully climb M12.

Watch Sarah's successful ascent of Musashi in Everyday, the complete film from AliasCinema.

Winter Layering - Mixed Climbing in Switzerland

Kandersteg in Switzerland has long been a mecca for alpine climbers. In 2015 Rab athlete Jeff Mercier made an incredible link up of three classic mixed routes - in a single day.

Jeff relies on Rab clothing and equipment on all his projects, and in the high mountains down insulation is still the ultimate insulator.

The Remarkables - Where we Belong - Mixed Climbing Friday's Fool

This movie retraces the first ascent of Friday's Fool, a steep mixed (rock + ice) climb on the front face of The Remarkables high above Queenstown in New Zealand.
Months of editing, filming, interviewing local climbers and taking pictures should hopefully give a sense to what climbing on The Remarkables is about!
This movie is dedicated to Howie Mcghie, whose love for the mountains, the outdoors shined through his life, so here is to Howie , a humble, generous and enthusiastic mountaineer. This movie would not have been possible without him.

Vlog #8: Winter is coming. Are you ready? In this episode I go through the fundamentals of what I do to prepare for the mixed climbing season. Dry tooling, cardio training, and some other important points that lead the dry tooling beasts to still fail to achieve their potential on the actual winter routes.

Scottish Ice trip - Mixed climbing in Ben Nevis - Scotland

If there is one place on earth where climbers celebrate the arrival of the next snowstorm, it has to be Scotland. Each winter, pounded by the North Atlantic winds, the Scottish Highlands are covered by a layer of snow and frost at the mercy of weather conditions. Here, winter climbing has existed for more than a century, and the smell of adventure is as authentic as the whisky borne of the local peat. Climbing is done from the ground up, without bolts, and generally onsight. An introduction to the very modern ethics of Scottish mixed climbing. It's in those condition that Ueli Steck flashed the secret (X, 10), the hardest climb in Ben Nevis.

Mixed Climbing Man Machine Greg Boswell | Britain's Best Climbers, Ep. 2

Climbing doesn't really pay, so he drives a tractor to get paid so that he can buy the gas to drive himself to the climbing spots. That's dedication.
Best of Britain episode two follows top winter climber Greg Boswell. Greg spends his summers working on a Scottish farm and his winters climbing hard routes in the mountains. Somewhere in between he trains by dry tooling both in a farm out building and at the UK's premiere dry tooling crag, The Tube at Newtyle Quarry.

You Won't Believe How This Ice Climber Trains to Scale Frozen Waterfalls | Sub-Zero, Ep. 2

Ice climbing is like smoking. If you don't do it you can't see why anyone would. If you do, you can't imagine life without it.

Gordon McArthur is a good example of a guy with a terminal case of ice climbing addiction. Although he lives in Cranbrook, British Columbia, he spends significant parts of the year in his van, traveling to climb and compete. When he's home, he spends five nights a week training on 'The Great Arch', his homemade climbing wall which has to be seen to be believed. It's not a life for everyone, but when you get to climb some of the routes he does, it's hard to criticize.

Winter Mixed and Ice Climbing - Tatra Mountains (Poland)

After successful ascent of Mont Blanc the Dream Team has decided to practice the winter skills in Tatra Mountains. The most difficult part of the trip was logistics: how to take the (lightweight anyway) climbing gear on board of the Ryanair flight? The weather and the conditions were absolutely fantastic and we have had lots of fun. Tatra Mountains are unique and beautiful and we are absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of climbing and mountaineering opportunities there. We have climbed (attempted) on the Bula pod Bandziochem (Zlebem (II-III) part, Droga blondyna (III) part, Bez znaczenia (V) - retreat. and Kaskady (WI 3/3+)).

Ice Climbing Tacul Triangle - Mont Blanc du Tacul couloirs and Gullies

In may 2014 we took the Aiguille du Midi cable car which takes you from 1000 meters elevation - Chamonix - into thin air: you reach 3777 m within minutes)
We stayed at the Refuge des cosmiques (hut) for 3 nights and tried some of the easier ice gullies (goulottes in french) as Contamine-Mazeaud, Chéré and German Gully (which, in fact, wasn´t in condition at all so it turned out a sheer dry climb with not a single ice screw used...

Weather was in our favour (not usual in Chamonix) with bright sun in the morning and overcast with snowfall from 2 pm.

It was our first experience that high and that steep so we had a professional guide with us to complete the 2nd rope team with Paul.

I forgot to bring my GoPro on the first day, on the second day I lost it half way up the route and on the third day the climbing was kind of tricky so the film turned out kind of a mix- up of all three days...
