WI6 on a top rope. Great climbing, but that was top roped. Tell your the guy climbing to be careful about place his tool in across from one another, it is a good way to break the pillar. But sick climbing and great camera angle.

Actually only the second clip was pre-clipped. We did this because the ice was delaminated from the rock... By the way this was a first ascent.

Ice climbers are crazy. I was just waiting for the pillar to come down as he climbed. Fortunately it did not. Nice video, makes my hands sweat. What time of the year was it when the climb was done? When does ice climbing season start in quebec?

Fivehard - it was filmed in early February. Tipically the season starts in December and ends in March... You'd be surprized how solid ice is, when it's good!

A nice video, and a good job, but it won't turn anyone on to ice climbing....This thing looked no fun at all.

I don't get it. Did u squid clip a bolt or did u rap in to set the second piece(screw or rock gear?)? If it's a bolt, then essentially you're on a top rope. That's a good way to climb light cause u can leave your balls at the bottom. If u used a cam or nut, then why didn't u set the second piece just before u got on the icecycle? Nowhere to set gear? Choss? If u set a screw in that icecycle further up, then you're just ONE BAD DUDE! Cool climb though.
