The Peach (WI5 M8)

Peach+6_20114493828BD athlete Raphael Slawinski makes first ascent of The Peach (WI 5 M8), a multi-pitch, bolt-free mixed line in the Canadian Rockies.

by The Black Diamond Crew

Black Diamond athlete Raph Slawinski has climbed ice all over the Canadian Rockies from fat ice flows to desperate mixed lines, bagging tons of first ascents along the way. Recently he teamed up with Grant Meekins to make the first ascent of an impressive bolt-free mixed line, The Peach (WI 5 M8). Raph was so stoked about the route he later returned with Jerome Yerly to make the second ascent, this time with Wiktor Skupinski along to film the action. The video deftly captures the demanding nature of the steep climbing, as well as shows just how chossy Rockies choss can get.
