Ice climbing

In the heart of the winter of 2012, Canadian climber Gordon McArthur had the great idea to invite his Scottish friend Andy Turner to discover his secret garden: the Bull River Canyon, a few minutes from his home in Cranbrook. Gordon has been putting up new routes there for several years. The two ice climbers took advantage of the wave of extreme cold that partly froze the river, allowing them to get into the basins of the Matador sector. During this trip, Gordon red-pointed his long-standing project, "Gordon Bull". As for Andy, he focused on flashing a maximum of routes in this unique area.
