Niagara Falls Ice Climbed

Will Gadd and Sarah Hueniken made records by scaling theĀ 51m-high frozen falls. They accomplished this in an hour, believe it or not? Check out theĀ video.

Will is a local Canmore resident. He’s won numerous national and international sport climbing competitions, the X Games for ice climbing (three gold medals), the world cup for ice climbing and many other competitions including second at the 2013 North American Championships, set the world paragliding distance record (twice, the only person to do so, more than 423K), won the US and Canadian Paragliding Nationals (several times), put up the hardest mixed and ice routes in the world for more than 15 years, written the top “how to” ice climbing book in the world (translated into five or more languages). He shares his adventures through writing, TV shows (more than 100), presentations (adventure and corporate speaking), and as a coach and guide.
