Frozen Niagara Falls Climbed

"Falling meant ending in cauldron of doom"

Climber conquers frozen Niagara falls wall for first time ever

Internationally renowned ice climber Will Gadd takes ice climbing to the next level by scaling the frozen sections of the world’s largest flowing waterfall, Niagara Falls.

Gadd, a world-renowned ice climber and paraglider from Alberta, Canada, has traveled to the ends of the earth to find the world’s most challenging climbs, but Niagara Falls, one of his home country‘s most iconic landmarks, is a lifelong mission that he previously thought impossible…until now.

The vertical climb is 150 feet of constant regrets at every turn, as it would appear to an ordinary human.

The low-frequency noise the waterfall makes is enough to scare the best of us.

But Gadd is anything but an ordinary human. And he chose the most treacherous of Niagara’s three sides to prove it – the Horseshoe Falls, described by other climbers as ‘unclimbable’.

“What really fires me up about doing any sort of climbing is figuring out a problem and solving it well in an interesting and cool way. For me this is just figuring out a puzzle,” he said.

“Don’t fall off,” was the thought playing on a loop through the climber’s head on January 27, as the hour-long climb progressed slowly. “If I fell off when I was climbing, especially down low, I would have ended up in this kind of cauldron of doom, where the water was all swirling.”

“When I finally got to the top, I was just really, really happy that it had all come together and we’d done it safely.”

Climbing is an incredibly demanding sport, and Gadd probably would not have been so expert at it, had it not been for his general athleticism – he also enjoys hockey, skiing and paragliding, among other things. He has gained worldwide acclaim for the latter.
