We are excited to announce that SCARPA Athlete, @grahamzimmerman and partner @now_climbing have completed the first ascent of a long, difficult mixed route on the North Face of Mount MacDonald at Roger's Pass, now titled "The Indirect American" (WI4+ M7, 1,000m).
Finding a weather window between frequent area closures gave them a shot at establishing the route. It took the team 62 hours car to car with 2 bivis and cruxes of WI4+ and M7. Super incredible feat you two, congratulations! #climbing#alpinism#iceclimbing#noplacetoofar
