  • Will Gadd on Climbing Niagara Falls
    it Still the pressure is considerable We have a very narrow window Gadd says We have to get it done or it s not happening A lot of people are watching If I break my ankle climbing in the Rockies no one would care If I break my ankle here and have to be rescued that likely goes global Ascending Niagara Falls was a moment about as big and cool as it gets says Gadd that almost didn t happen When first pitched to red tape wielding officials they flatly said no I believe it was Hell no Major David Page recalls with a wry grin as he watches the day s events unfold The 30 year New York State Parks Police vet had managed the crush of thousands of spectators who gathered for Nik Wallenda s 2012 televised tightrope traverse and he wasn t eager for another go But things change In advance of his ascent Gadd checks his gear before rappeling down the wall to clear loose potentially hazardous ice Greg Mionske A look into Will Gadd s essentials and gear for the first ascent of Niagara Falls Keith Ladzinski Gadd hooks an ice tool to his harness He pioneered many of the techniques used to climb spray ice Greg Mionske A detail shot of Gadd s gloves covered in frozen spray Greg Mionske Will Gadd takes off his ice caked crampons and boots after making the first ascent of Niagara Falls Greg Mionske Team Gadd re approached with a more comprehensive plan one that would assure environmental sensitivity There won t be a trace I was ever here he says include training in ice climbing for the park s search and rescue team and promote awareness of the winter beauty of the tourist attraction which is all but devoid of visitors this time of year Niagara Falls is pretty much a holy grail for me The help of a few New York state assembly people and the governor s office didn t hurt Note to anyone considering their own such project Don t But if you must be sure to pack along consultants like ex Military Special Ops guys who talk the law enforcement talk and production company vets who know how to pull a permit Gadd in typical fashion conducted every step of the way Climbing is what I love he says When I tie into the rope and I start climbing I love it But the rest of this stuff it s my job It s January 27 After months of planning ascension day has arrived A large camera jib has been carried to the cliff s edge by the safety roped crew Gadd s longtime lensman Christian Pondella has set anchors roped in and leaned way out over the abyss with his camera in hand More photographers are positioned at the base and across the river in Canada Gadd s climbing partner Sarah Hueniken has suited up to belay i e feed out rope

  • Will Gadd's Journey to Niagara
    of his climbing endeavors narrates the athlete s most important climbs that helped prepared him for frozen Niagara Falls Sports Will Gadd on Niagara Behind the scenes on the champion ice climber s journey up Niagara Falls Advertising Banff National Park Canada 2005 When Will was putting up this new mixed climbing route a combination of rock and ice climbing that typically requires crampons and ice climbing tools it was considered one of the toughest in the world Back then he was leading the charge on mixed climbing and still is today The ice tools are more specific for this type of climbing than just pure water ice but for the most part it s ice climbing gear on rock At the time most climbers had heel spurs a pick on the heel that sticks outward You could hook that in a pocket to hold yourself Will was one of the first to do away with those because he saw them as cheating Now I don t think anybody climbs with heel spurs Labrador Canada 2005 These icebergs come down from Greenland and can be up to 100 000 years old They are floating about seven miles out to sea we spent a week out there on a boat hunting icebergs that we could climb on This type of ice reacts differently than ice on rock it s very brittle and cracks easily This particular iceberg actually split in half after Will got off of it They can roll over at any moment Getting off and on the boat in the open sea with the waves is pretty difficult and dangerous as well Mine Shafts Sweden 2007 Will had heard of these old mine shafts in Sweden that had ice in them We spent 10 days exploring two different lines repelling 500 feet under ground to where the ice was in these caves Logistically it was a fairly involved project because we had to bring generators and lights down into the caves to shoot the climbs It was like being inside a huge amphitheater In this shot I m a couple hundred feet away shooting Will from another part of the cavern Eidfjord Norway 2010 This trip was about discovery It was big ice climbing The premise of this trip was to go to a place we hadn t been to and explore new ice routes To our knowledge he was the first to climb this particular waterfall We based ourselves in a small town on the Fjords and drove around for 10 days looking to discover new waterfalls We would go hike up to it and figure out the logistics of climbing it then go back the next day and climb it This waterfall he is climbing is about 650 feet high Helmcken Falls British Columbia 2014 This is Will on the fourth highest waterfall in Canada He was the first to pioneer this place and it was the first time anyone has climbed overhanging ice like this It
