ACMG Alpine Guide Sarah Hueniken climbs Musashi, one of the hardest mixed routes in Canada.

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 in modern style.

Alexander Lavigne has been directing for over ten years now. He owes a great deal of gratitude to the VIMFF who screened his first ever story "Long Brevity" an expedition documentary on Mt. Logan's East Ridge. He resides in Revelstoke, B.C. with his wife a two busy daughters.
