On July 22, 2015 Leo Houlding, Joe Möhle, Matt Pickles, Matt Pycroft and Waldo Etherington made the first ascent of the Mirror Wall—a nearly 4,000-foot
northwest face in Greenland. The British team had been on the wall for 12 days and free-climbed 23 of the 25 pitches.
“Reflections in the Mirror,” a feature by Houlding, appeared in Rock and Ice issue 231 (January 2016). In the article, Houlding explores the balance
between fatherhood, responsibility and his dream of a first ascent of Greenland’s biggest face.
Sheffield-based adventure filmmakers Coldhouse Collective documented their adventure, which will premiere
as a film this September.
