It is not often there is more ice climbing news from Squamish than from the Rockies, but Tim Emmett has established a wild looking mixed climb he called 100% Proof, M10, with Jamie Finlayson. This was Finlayson’s first ice climb. Emmett said it was the first place he has climbed that is similar to Helmcken Falls, “Top pitch we climbed is about M9/10. You couldn’t climb it if it wasn’t iced up. Amazing atmosphere next to the falls too, so fun. It’s out of this world.”

From Finlayson’s Facebook: This was by far wildest thing I have ever done! What an amazing experience. Tim Emmett crushed a new M10 route up Brandywine Falls, naming it 100% Proof and I had the pleasure to belay him. I am super excited to be a part of the team. This was my first ice/mixed climb! What a place to learn. I managed to do all of the moves.
