On my very first trip to Alberta, a particular ridgeline that defines much of the Icefields Parkway captured my imagination, my heart, and sparked my desire to explore it.
On my second trip to Alberta, a year ago, @realwillgadd identified that grand feature as the "Endless Chain Ridge" and said that it had never been traversed, concluding with the most inspiring words that I had ever heard: "Go get it." That moment galvanized my resolve.
Six months later, I met @lanleyc in the European Alps and we forged an unbreakable bond through trials on rock and ice that challenged both of us to levels that neither of us had ever experienced. Those tribulations would merely serve to be training for our traverse of the Endless Chain Ridge, which pushed us into a totally new realm of the unknown; the experience forced us to #CelebrateDiscomfort in ways that even we didn't know were possible.
We are alive - and these stories are waiting to be told. Get ready. 📷: @lanleyc after the gnarliest night of our lives
