At a rating of M12, Musashi is one of the hardest mixed routes in Canada. Ten years ago, Outdoor Research Athlete Ambassador and ACMG Alpine Guide Sarah Hueniken saw a video of the route being climbed by renowned climbers Will Gadd and Ben Firth. This April, she ventured into Alberta’s Cineplex Cave and climbed it herself, becoming the first North American woman to successfully climb M12.  

Watch a section of Sarah’s successful ascent of Musashi in this teaser for “Everyday”, a new film from AliasCinema, coming soon.
