Harrington, Leclerc and Lavigne Climb New Route on Baffin’s Great Sail

Brette Harrington, Marc-Andre Leclerc and Joshua Lavigne visited Baffin Island this summer. After an extended trip, they left with some amazing northern Canada experiences and a big new route called The West Buttress of Great Sail, an 1,100-metre 5.12a C1.

In her story, Harrington wrote, “The splitter crack system stretched half way up the face, arching back to an overhanging offset crack. The two of us spent hours examining the line, realizing that it may not go free after the end of the wave, but technical aid may be the way up.” Read the full story that was posted by Arc’teryx here.
