SCARPA shod Gadd grabs Climbing Mag’s Golden Piton (Ice) for Spray On (WI10)

Jan. 14th 2011

Climbing Magazine recognized Will Gadd and Tim Emmett’s crazy unique Spray On route, which they discovered behind the 463 -foot-high Helmcken Falls in British Columbia, Canada last winter, with the magazine’s prestigious Golden Piton award in the Ice category.

Revisiting Will’s report on the discovery and subsequent adventure of what he calls the coolest, steepest and hardest ice route he’s ever climbed still brings chills of excitement.

For a better sense of the unique route, check out Tim’s video below. Congrats to Tim and Will for the recognition.
