Mar­itimes’ First WI6

Gripped - - NEWS -

On March 24, Max Fisher and Luc Gal­lant made the first as­cent of the first-ever WI6 in the Mar­itimes and called it The Mon­ster. It’s found above the At­lantic Ocean at Raven Head Wilder­ness Area. “The Mon­ster starts with a se­ries of lock-offs, as the bot­tom of the route is washed away from the tides,” said Fisher, “Then you’re on the first of three pil­lars. The route climbs 55 me­tres of 90- de­gree funky caulif lower ice. There are stretches of good ice where you want it for pro­tec­tion.”
