The SCARPA Team Winter Travelogue

Jan. 24th 2011

Will Gadd has returned to Helmcken Falls with Tim Emmett and continues to explore how, exactly, to perhaps climb the bizarre ice formations that he and Tim discovered last year. As Will reports, “So far the climbing has consisted of super technical radically overhanging ice action to just get a line of gear out the cave. Yeah, CAVE!”

Gordon McArthur is currently touring Europe competing in ice climbing world cup competitions as part of the Canadian team, but sent us this video of a new project he is working on in the Bull River Gorge, B.C., Canada, called El Matador.

A little closer to home, Andrew McClean put in a few days exploring Silverton, Colorado with friends, and a potato gun…before he had to do battle with the outdoor industry at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market. I don’t think we’ll be seeing a trip report from OR but with Andrew you never know.

What’s next? That’s a great question. Stay tuned as we try and keep up with our team as they explore the mountains around the world.
