Last week, renowned ice climber Will Gadd and his climbing partner Sarah Hueniken become the first people to climb Niagara Falls. On that epic ascent, Gadd wore a GoPro camera to capture a first-person perspective of the climb. This video features some of that footage, giving us all an idea of the conditions he faced while going up the falls. As noted in a post-climb interview, the ice was very different from a typical waterfall since it forms from the sides and not top-down. You’ll see how that impacts the ascent in this clip, as the ice is definitely irregularly shaped as a result. Either way, it’s an impressive climb to be sure.
