Watch Pete Takeda’s Northern Quebec Ice Film

Pete Takeda is one of North America’s most experienced ice and alpine climbers with big ascents across Canada.

In this short film, Takeda has pieced together clips from visit to many of Quebec’s most cherished ice climbing areas. The film starts with a whipper off a mixed route. Enjoy!

“Find your narrative, embrace that narrative, then live your story,” Takeda said. “We are told from childhood that everyone has a story. What we’re not told is narrative power resides in its capacity to inspire.

“That said, we are more influential than we might realize. Stories speak to universal truths… Without exception, every life is a great drama full of spirit and love, beset by conflicts large and small.

“If we choose to own it, we have a shot at the authentic life—the most inspiring narrative of all.”
