Gordon McArthur is the Bozeman Ice Climbing Festival web site designer and consulted on the design of the Ice Breaker Tower. As a World Cup competitor, his insight and inspiration was critical for us to get 'er done.
At the 2011 BIF historical retrospective, Gord introduced the Boone Speed film "El Matador." El Matador is Gord's amazing M12 first ascent in Canada's unique Bull River Canyon. This route is at the forefront of the current state of the art in mixed ice climbing.
Gord is sponsored by Outdoor Research, Petzl, and Scarpa. OR is the official sponsor of our legendary Women's Clinic and also sends Gord and many other incredible ice climbing athletes to Bozeman for the fest.
