In this video, Dawn Wall free-climber Kevin Jorgeson and Jacob Cook head to the Bugaboos to attempt the second ascent of the Tom Egan Memorial Route, which has one of the hardest, most excruciating crack climbs in the world, renowned for reducing fingertips to shreds.

The route has only been freed once, by B.C.’s own Will Stanhope back in 2015 with his partner, Matt Segal coming close. Jorgeson plans to finish his send of this route in 2019, but a few other strong climbers also plan to contend for the second ascent.
