Evan Stevens, Jeremy Blumel and Craig McGee flew into the Adamant Mountains of British Columbia this summer to attempt new routes and new free routes on the 2,000' walls of the Austerity Glacier. After having been there in 2008, they had a better clue of what they needed to do to open up some 15-20 pitch new alpine big wall free routes, and were planning to attempt free climbs on The Turret and Blackfriar. Here is their story. In 2008, this journey began with Evan, Craig, and those fickle weather gods...Never admit defeat! Evan, Craig, and Jeremy went back for more in July. And then back again in August. Third time's the charm?When the mountains give you lemons, make lemonade at Man Camp. Read about more of Evan's escapades into the great playgrounds of Canada, south of the border, Europe, and everywhere and anywhere else he can find stellar rock and snow on his blog.
