“It’s not just ice climbing, it’s like ice climbing in a serac zone, you’ve gotta be really heads up all the time.” - Will Gadd
A few years after Will Gadd discovers the spray cave hidden behind Helmcken Falls, British adventure junky, Tim Emmett, and Slovenian strongman Klemen Premrl, set their sights on Will Mayo and Chris Geisler’s boldest creation. They called it Wolverine and gave it a WI grade of 11, the hardest ice climb thus far on the planet.
This documentary style short film follows the elite climbers as they fight their way through a ceiling of ice in a location which overloads the senses.
“…that pitch today is the hardest thing I’ve ever done on ice axes.” - Tim Emmett.
