Lake Superior has big walls along its shore and Tim Emmett climbed a new steep ice line on on one of them in Michigan. He called his new route On the Rocks WI6X and is visiting the area for the 2017 Michigan Ice Fest. The line climbs next to the classic HMR WI5 at Grand Portal Point.
Cerebral climbing on the First Ascent of "On The Rocks" WI,6X a really cool thin ice smear to the right of the ultra classic HMR above Lake Superior. 25km car to car and perfect conditions 🙂 so psyched we managed to slay this rare beast 😉 Thanks for helping to make it happen and this rad shot @eolsenphoto and Brian Weisner for being my trusty climbing partner. #michigan #icefest #2017 @mountainhardwear @blackdiamond #climbing #ice #FA #michiganicefest2017 @scarpa_uk @adidaseyewearuk
