Swift Blade: Steadfast in the Canadian Winter
Tanja Schmitt, Heike Schmitt and Matthias Scherer arrived on October 21, 2019 in the Canadian Rockies. In 40 days they did 30 days of ice and mixed climbing.
This film features two lines Schmitt, Schmitt and Scherer did during their ice climbing trip to the Canadian Rockies in October 2019: French Reality and Killer Pillar, both on the Stanley Headwall. Conditions were severe with low temperatures and freshly formed ice. The last pitch of French Reality—the crux ice pitch (WI 6+)—had seen no prior ascent that season.
