When you’ve given everything, what do you have left?
After achieving his dream summit, an elite climber finds himself empty. Broken and untethered, he searches for a fulfillment more lasting than a faraway peak.

BD athlete Raphael Slawinski makes first ascent of The Peach (WI 5 M8), a multi-pitch, bolt-free mixed line in the Canadian Rockies.
by The Black Diamond Crew
Black Diamond athlete Raph Slawinski has climbed ice all over the Canadian Rockies from fat ice flows to desperate mixed lines, bagging tons of first ascents along the way. Recently he teamed up with Grant Meekins to make the first ascent of an impressive bolt-free mixed line, The Peach (WI 5 M8). Raph was so stoked about the route he later returned with Jerome Yerly to make the second ascent, this time with Wiktor Skupinski along to film the action. The video deftly captures the demanding nature of the steep climbing, as well as shows just how chossy Rockies choss can get.

I had the opportunity to climb Nemesis with Raphael Slawinski a couple weeks ago. We hiked up the Stanley Valley in the early morning looking for the climb ‘Gentlemen’s Day Out’, but we didn’t really know where to find it. Our default for the day was to climb Nemesis, which we have both climbed half a dozen times or so. It turned out to be more difficult then we expected, cold and brittle ice all the way to the top, with a shower of water adding to the excitement. Even though it was cold and wet I managed to pull the camera out to get some cool footage.
