Will Gadd is only a couple of years away from qualifying for a CARP membership (Canadian version of AARP), but he’s still got it. Gadd,
who hasn’t been to Vail, Colorado in 17 years, cruised The Mustang P-51 (M14-), in The Fang Amphitheater of East Vail—second go.

Gadd’s is the third ascent of The Mustang P-51, established by Will Mayo and repeated (on his third go) by Korean powerhouse Kwon Young-Hye
last December.

“As with Kwon, Will finished the climb reaching the no-hands ledge with a single bolt anchor atop The Flying Fortress (M13), down-climbed
a bit, and then jumped off . . . just for fun,” Mayo comments in the video description. Nothing like a 60-foot victory whip with crampons and ice tools!
