06 Apr Winter ascent to Mount Chephren (Canadian Rockies)
On February 2009 Dana Ruddy, Raphael Slawinski and Eamonn Walsh completed the sixth ascent of The Wild Thing (VI M7 WI5) on the northeast face of Mt. Chephren (3307 m), Canadian Rockies.
It was also the first ascent of the direct start to the route, and the first ascent of a Canadian Rockies grade VI in winter in a continuous push.
The team was planning the usual three-day trip, but the weather and snow stability were so good that they had the idea to climb the route in a single push.
They started from the car on february 1st at 6.30 am, summited at 11.30 on February 22 and at 4PM were back to their car.
