You Won't Believe How This Ice Climber Trains to Scale Frozen Waterfalls | Sub-Zero, Ep. 2
http://www.epictv.com/ Ice climbing is like smoking. If you don't do it you can't see why anyone would. If you do, you can't imagine life without it. Gordon McArthur is a good example of a guy with a terminal case of ice climbing addiction. Although he lives in Cranbrook, British Columbia, he spends significant parts of the year in his van, traveling to climb and compete. When he's home, he spends five nights a week training on 'The Great Arch', his homemade climbing wall which has to be seen to be believed. It's not a life for everyone, but when you get to climb some of the routes he does, it's hard to criticize.

Gordon McArthur: Never Giving Up
Canada's Gordon McArthur retired from competition ice climbing midway through the 2018 season.

Twelve months later, a reflective McArthur explains the reasons for his return to World Cup action ahead of the competition in Denver, United States.
Storm Giant: The World's Hardest Drytooling Route
The story of Gord McArthur's ascent of Storm Giant (D16), the hardest drytooling* route in the world. *Please note that this line has been changed from 'mixed' to 'drytooling' as this route was not established as a mixed route. The route is designated with a 'D' rating to distinguish it as such. We have changed the copy to reflect this here, but cannot change the film's title. This was an oversight on our part and apologize for the confusion.
