Back in January we reported about the antics of Tim Emmett and Will Gadd on the Spray On ice formations at Helmcken Falls in Wells Gray Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada. (UKC News report here and here on the early stages of the route, and here on the completion).
Will Gadd has been back to the cave and, working with Alex Lavigne and AliasCinema, has produced this short film of the climbing. It is a bit slow to start but stick with it for the stunning shots of Will climbing towards the end.
As a bonus feature (well really an old film we ran back in February) Jack Geldard talked to Tim Emmmett about Spray On while climbing at Cogne.
Thanks are due to Andrew Querner, Chris Geisler, Sarah Hueniken, John Freeman, Wiktor Skupinski, Tim Emmett and Klemen Premrl. Music by: Moby Gratis
