Gord McArthur’s open invitation to go mixed climbing with him in Bull River Canyon

Oct. 21st 2011

SCARPA athlete, Gord McArthur, has discovered a plethora of potential new routes in Bull River Canyon outside of his hometown of Cranbrook, B.C., and the temperatures are starting to drop. Gord is looking for other interested parties to help explore and develop some mixed climbing routes in the canyon.

“For years I had been staring at various parts of the Bull River Canyon, knowing how amazing it would be to put up epic lines all throughout. But it wasn’t until last year that I actually understood/comprehended what actually was in front of me. Last winter I had the opportunity to establish and climb one of the coolest routes I had ever seen/been on, but EL Matador (M12) was only the beginning. As I topped out and turned around and looked at the opposite wall, I was amazed at what I saw…there was more, and steeper, and longer.”
