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.
“The Mirror Wall is by far the most impressive feature in the region, standing proud like a redwood among Christmas trees,” Houlding wrote in Reflections in the Mirror,
which appeared in Rock and Ice issue 231 (January 2016).
In the film by Sheffield-based Coldhouse Collective, Houlding explores the balance between fatherhood, responsibility
and his dream of a first ascent of Greenland’s biggest face. The film will premiere on October 29 at the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival in Banff, Canada, and will be released online, for free, on November 18.
