Souren pulling Atlantic City crux

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Souren pulling Atlantic City crux

An overhanging lackback makes for a committing but safe crux at the roof on Atlantic City. Souren Beylerian in perfect form.

Hyaena biting back

Average Rating = 2.80/5 Hyaena biting back

Yours truly getting his back side bitten by this animal of a route. Hang-hyaening for a change. Hats off to the first ascentionists. Photo by Anders Bengtsson

On the trail to Mt Thor

Average Rating = 4.22/5 On the trail to Mt Thor

An inukshuk marks the trail through the flowers to the base of Mt Thor, "the highest vertical face in the world". The cliff is actually concave. If you were to drop a biner from the last pitch on the headwall, it would free fall about 1000m before hitting anything. Yikes.

Scrambling about

Average Rating = 3.62/5 Scrambling about

Tasmania has lots of rock. Here my buddy Maya and I are goofing around by the edge of a waterfall in the southwest's wilderness. Like kids in a playground.

Home made gear

Average Rating = 2.40/5 Home made gear

This image gives an idea of the local scenery. The Heffalump is a 2-pitch easy ice-climb. This pic was taken quite a few years ago. Bernard, my partner, was climbing with home made crampons and picks. I had my brand new Charlet crampons, but my picks too were from my own garage!

Tirokwa, south-west buttress

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Tirokwa, south-west buttress

An overview of one of the most non-commital faces of the Akshayuk pass. Routes in the 5.8 range, but possibilities for more big-wall style ascents.

Classic Tasmanian climbing

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Classic Tasmanian climbing

Can't get much better than this: easy climbing on perfectly clean granite cracks looking out over the Tasman Sea. Unfortunately, I forgot the name of the route. Myself climbing, belayed by Claire. Photo: Lucky.

Gringalet 2nd pitch

Average Rating = 2.80/5 Gringalet 2nd pitch

The second pitch takes a funneled ice up a narrow corner. It is usually the only pitch where you can put good screws in. In any case, you can put a few rock pieces in too, which is reassuring.

The beef

Average Rating = 3.00/5 The beef

To a user who was asking where "the beef" was on this climb, rated WI4, I pointed out this image. Though not quite vertical, the climb is always thin. Actually, as it is pictured here, it is pretty much as good as it gets. The ice umbrella above the climber is called "La main" or"The Hand". It forms consistently because of rising winds. It sure is intimidating to spend an hour belaying right under it.

Looking down Tirokwa glacier

Average Rating = 4.12/5 Looking down Tirokwa glacier

Looking down toward the Akshayuk Pass as the sun sets on limitless climbing possibilities. The north faces on the left are of good granite. Such faces in the Alps or elsewhere would be criss-crossed with routes. As it is, there may be no routes at all on these faces.

Sunset on Mt Overlord

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Sunset on Mt Overlord

An artistic view that none the less gives an idea of the scale and nature of this face. Complex, massive (about one and half the hieght of El Capitan), and topped by a thick ice cap too.

Gloomy lake

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Gloomy lake

So you've heard of Baffin's depressing weather. Well, this is what it can look like. There is some beauty to it, but it does get on your nerves after a few days of it.

Sand Castle peak

Average Rating = 3.80/5 Sand Castle peak

Looking at the sky from our camping spot in the valley. One neat thing about the arctic circle is that the sunsets last all night in July.

evening climb

Average Rating = 0.00/5 evening climb

A small peak south of Mt Thor. We climbed it during a brief opening in the weather one evening. About 500 m above the glacier, a couple hours via the obvious snowslope.

Patrick Delaney solo on The Green Fang

Average Rating = 3.25/5 Patrick Delaney solo on The Green Fang

The Green Fang is one of a dozen short classics of Calabogie ice. The area offers a dense succession of varied climbs in a beautiful setting. Photo by Yann Troutet.

Souren Beylerian of the Edelweiss WI4 classic

Average Rating = 3.40/5 Souren Beylerian of the Edelweiss WI4 classic

The area is named after a nearby ski hill, and is mostly known for this obvious thick grade 4 ice climb. Although most climbers hike up to the base of the fat pillar, the ice usually fills a narrow chimney bellow the main flow, which gives for an exciting (though short) first pitch.

Richard Lauriault on Castle Wall ice pillar

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Richard Lauriault on Castle Wall ice pillar

The pillar, though small, is very elegant. It usually overhangs quite a bit, which make the short climb an intense one. Photo: Yann Troutet

Summit Lake

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Summit Lake

The view down the Akshayuk Pass from Summit Lake. The peak on the left is Mt Breidablik, to me one of the most beautiful pieces of mountain architecture in the world.

Mt Tirokwa's Northwest buttress

Average Rating = 3.60/5 Mt Tirokwa's Northwest buttress

The tripple-peaked buttress that overlooks Windy Lake is one of the most accessible big walls of Auyuittuq National Park. The smooth wall on the left is about 800 metres high, the peak in the cloud is a couple hundred metres higher. From there, a snow arete leads to the main summit. Stringing together these various sections would be a major undertaking.

Thor and Tirokwa

Average Rating = 3.90/5 Thor and Tirokwa

A classic photo spot under dramatic lighting conditions. Mt Thor and its overhanging headwall are on the left. The snowy peak in the centre is Tirokwa. For scale, it's a 1400 m drop from the summit of Thor to the valley bottom. Tirokwa is about 200 metres higher. I can just imagine the view from the top of it...

Unnamed peaks

Average Rating = 4.09/5 Unnamed peaks

Two of the countless peaks found between the Pangnirtung and Kingnait fjords. Many of these give for fairly easy climbs, if you stick to the easy side that is... We found an old rubber glove on the peak in the centre of the photo.
