On a recent climbing trip to Greenland, Mike Libecki, Angie Payne and Ethan Pringle discovered a new route up a massive rock tower. With just three days to go until their boat arrived to pick them up, they decided to give it a go. It turned out to be a fantastic route and the short film below chronicles taht adventure, complete with nights spent bivvying on tiny rock ledges.
The video has it all. Beautiful landscapes, dramatic climbing and a big payoff at the end with the first ascent of a 3000-foot (914 meters) rock-face competed over about 60 hours. Excellent stuff and a nice look at what goes into a big wall climb.
