In 2014, Canadian climber and Arc'teryx athlete Paul McSorley, made the journey to Baffin Island in the remotest reaches of Canada to attempt the first ascent of the North Face of Beluga Spire. Most teams tackle the spire in winter, but as Paul, Tony Richardson, Joshua Lavigne and Crosby Johnston were attempting the North face, they had to make the trip out in the summer months. This presented some unusual challenges to the team. First of all reaching the wall was harder as it was necessary to take a boat rather than travelling across the ice that covers the sea during the winter months. Secondly, the team were climbing during a time of year when the sun never sets and while this might be perfect for big wall pushes, it still plays havoc with your body clock! We caught up with Paul while he was in Chamonix at the 2015 Arc'teryx Alpine Academy to ask him about the trip and his plans for the future.
