From EpictTV: Ice climbing is like smoking. If you don’t do it you can’t see why anyone would. If you do, you can’t imagine life without it. Gordon McArthur is a good example of a guy with a terminal case of ice climbing addiction. Although he lives in Cranbrook, British Columbia, he spends significant parts of the year in his van, traveling to climb and compete. When he’s home, he spends five nights a week training on ‘The Great Arch’, his homemade climbing wall which has to be seen to be believed. It’s not a life for everyone, but when you get to climb some of the routes he does, it’s hard to criticize.
