The North Face Verto Glacier GTX S6K - hard outdoor review

In winter season 2013/14 I had the opportunity to test The North Face Verto Glacier GTX S6K. Verto S6K model was released in the winter season 2012/2013 and you can tell that it is "older brother" Verto S4K GTX model, dedicated to a height of 6000 meters above sea level row (S4K was at about 4000 meters). TNF company produces shoes in this category just only a few years so I was curious to see how Verto S6K prove themselves.

Eiger west face on skis... almost

Eiger... One of most famous peaks in Alps. North Face of Eiger is 1800 meters high.  Heckmair Route on this face is iconic. But Eiger has also easier routes. On west face you will find route to peak. In good conditions you can go there on skis. Here is some photos from our trip. On summit of Eiger we have been 19 march 2015.

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 ;).

Hydrofobia WI5+

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

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 :-).

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).

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 :).

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.

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).
