Marc-Andre Leclerc, Brette Harrington and MEC Ambassador Joshua Lavigne spent 30 days last summer exploring Baffin Island's Great Sail Peak. After crossing splintering pack ice and freeing seven pitches they found another team of climbers camped on a wide ledge at the start of their intended route. New plan: two new lines up the west and northwest spires stretching 1100m above the fjords. Challenges: a 5-day storm, steep verglass, technical aid, wetness and freeing pitches up to 5.13a. By supporting innovative outdoor exploits across Canada and around the world, MEC Expedition Support helps Canadians turn ambitious goals into inspiring realities.
