Axe Cam!

The helmet cam?  That’s old news!

NEice brings you video from Lake Willoughby… like you’ve never seen it before!

 

Ax Cam - Prototype 2. We destroyed this mount so it's back to the shop to make it stronger and better.

Ice screw placement, anchors and V-threads

A great film by Petzl on proper ice screw placement technique, as well as how to set an anchor and a v-thread.

Ice climbing basics: Ice screw placement, anchors and V-threads [EN] from Petzl-sport on Vimeo.This film demonstrates proper ice screw placement technique, as well as how to set an anchor and a v-thread in waterfall ice. We will discuss the key technical elements, but remember that when swinging your tools into the ice, it is crucial to understand the medium on which you are climbing. The quality of the ice, its structure, the terrain above, recent changes in temperature – all these factors and others must be considered before you step off the ground and onto the ice.

Beyond Good and Evil

This climb was first put up in 1992 by Andy Parkin and Mark Twight. “Twenty years later, it is still a benchmark for aspiring high-end mixed climbers in the Alps” – Climbing.com.

Published on Oct 1, 2014
“In the house of pain, we were chained together searching for our truth, beyond good and evil”. This quote from Nietzsche inspired Andy Parkin and Mark Twight, the openers of this mixed climbing route, that became a reference. Listed extremely difficult, North oriented, this route was appealing for François Damilano and François Marsigny, the repeaters of the route.
Last winter, it was time for the up-and-coming generation, represented by Marion Poitevin and Sébastien Ratel to meet the challenge. Three duos, three experiences, three encounters… echoing the Trilogy alpine series.
