ACC Social Night |
by: Will Stanhope
Will started climbing at the Edge Climbing
Centre as a kid in the mid nineties. When he
teenager he started begging
older climbers for rides up the Sea To Sky
highway often with best buddies Dave Nykyforuk
After completing high school he left on a "one
year" road trip with Kruk in a Navy Blue 1987
cargo van armed with a
fake ID that looked nothing like him. They
arrived in Yosemite awestruck and intimidated,
they lacked in big wall
experience they made up for in gung-ho
Teaming up with Jeremy Blumel and Craig McGee
they made a "one-day" ascent of the Nose of El
Capitan in 27 hours. Later in
the trip they climbed Half Dome and topped out
in a brewing storm.
Hooked on big walls, he has yet to return to
post secondary education, to the disappointment
Will is coming out for the evening to discuss his recent adventures with his climbing partner and good friend Leo
Houlding about their futuristic projects in the Bugaboos and adventures in Patagonia.
