While we’re in the mood for climbing videos today, check out this one, which documents a winter climb of Arrigetch Peak in Alaska along a new 5.11+ route. That mountain falls inside the Brooks Range, above the Arctic Circle no less, which would make it a challenge to climb in any season, let alone the dead of the Alaskan winter.
The short film follows climbers Tommy Caldwell, Hayden Kennedy, and Corey Rich as they ski to the mountain, then proceed up a 1300-foot route. It is quite a challenge and quite an adventure. Looks like they had a great time doing it too!
