What happens in Canadian Rockies?

From 15 january to 11 february I have been in Canadian Rockies. I climb with Mike Dorocicz, Jędrzej Jabłoński. We do some nice climbing routes (Nophobia M10, Musashi M12, Slipstream WI4+ VI 1000m and many others). Below is film from this trip. Film is in polish, but there are also some pictures... Enjoy it ;).

JJ on Caveman ~M10

Video from Haffner Cave in Canadian Rockies. Jędrzej Jabłoński (JJ) send classic route Caveman ~M10 (author give M10-). JJ climb without figure 4/9.

Slipstream VI, WI4

Sllipstream WI4 / VI, 1000m first climbed in 1979 is the one of the most classics routes rockies. Route technically is easy (WI4), but dangerous (seracs, avalanches) and not so good descent do a real adventure :-).

Nemesis WI6 on Stanley Headwall

Nemesis is one of the most beautiful icefalls which I have ever done. It consist just only 2 long piches (WI4-6 and WI6), but they are amazing :).

Nophobia M10 in Ghost

Nophobia M10 is the hard drytooling line in Ghost Arena in Canadian Rockies. We climb this route on 27 january 2015 (see news).

Weeping Wall in Canadian Rockies

Weeping Wall is one of the most famous icefalls in Rockies. 160 meters of ice from WI4 to WI5+. Mandatory route in Rockies. It consist Lower Weeping Wall (160 meters) and second Ice fall: Upper Weeping Wall (about 170 meters).

Sea of Vapors WI5-7 on Trophy Wall

Sea of Vapors WI5-7 on Trophy Wall is one of the famous ice line in Rockies. Trophy Wall (aka Terminator Wall) is place where all lines are amazing, and each route will be "trophy" in your climbing CV. Probably the most popular is Sea of Vapors.

Hydrofobia WI5+

Hydrofobia WI5+ in Ghost Arena is Icefall, which you must do! Three pitches (WI3, WI5+, WI5+) are beautiful.

Murchison Falls WI4+

Murchison Falls WI4+ were the best "Grade 4" Ice fall which I try (We retreat, because we don't have time to end this icefall). Real "Ice river". Recommended! On the right you have Virtual Reallity WI6. Two great classic ice falls. If you do both, then will be nice ice day ;).

Carlsberg Column WI5

Carlsberg Column WI5 is nice icefall in Canadian Rockies, with good vertical ice.
