Last week we spoke to Ruedi Beglinger about his new route development at the Victor Lake Wall. Beglinger is a climber and route developer based in Revelstoke, BC. His company Selkirk Mountain Experience has been operating since 1985 from a chalet on the Durrand Glacier. The backcountry terrain around the glacier is three times the size of Whistler-Blackcomb. It has a consistent and reliable snowpack in the winter for skiing and long alpine routes in the summer. Two years ago Tommy Caldwell visited Beglinger and bolted a crag near the chalet, the routes range from 5.10 to 5.14.
This week Beglinger was interviewed on the CBC program Daybreak South. He discussed Victor Lake Wall and why he named his new route Mystery.
