Community slide show at IME - International Mountain Equipment with visiting climber Dave Nettle. FREE! Bring your friends!
Tucked away in the remote northeast corner of Canada near Greenland, Baffin Island is home to native Inuit, polar bears, dramatic scenery and some of the biggest granite walls on earth. Join Tahoe, California-based climber Dave Nettle for images, stories, and laughs from his recent trip to Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island with Reuben Shelton. The presentation will highlight their ascent of the spectacular 3,000 foot Scott-Hennek route on Mount Asgard and a new route they established on the sweeping southeast ridge of Mount Loki.
Dave will also share highlights from his incredible granite free-climbing career, which includes the first one-day free ascent of “All Along The Watchtower” in the Bugaboos, “The Eternal Flame” route on Nameless (Trango) Tower in Pakistan, the Russian Tower and Pik Asan in Kyrgyzstan, a new route in Greenland, and the FA of numerous Sierra backcountry classics including routes on the Incredible Hulk and Angel Wings.
