Baffin Island Climbing

Big walls, big falls, big rivers, deep snow and quite amazing scenery. From the summary of their video:

“Rock climbing expedition on Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic 45 days, 0 nights, 600km on foot, 4 guys, 1 girl,... and the polar bears...”

More of their story here. Including this tidbit:

“Luckily we had a hammock for the the fifth person. Every day we did rock, paper, sizers to see who was sleeping in the hammock…One night, when it was Silvia’s turn to sleep in the hammock we heard a loud scream. When we looked out, Silvia was dangling off a rope three meters lower. The hammock had suddenly flipped and thrown her for a ride. Always a nice way to wake up.”
