Guest speaker: Lex Holcombe
Lex has stood at the bottom of cliffs for the last 40 years and thought ‘how the f*** do I get up that!???’. His trip to Canada was no different.

It is a mini orientation to just some of the climbs in Canada (including an NA classic 50), an insight into the enormous potential for adventure and some practicalities on the nuts and bolts of how to get around Squamish, The Bugaboos and the NW Territories.
