"Tim and I did a new route out at Brandywine Falls. It was my first ever mixed climb. It was an M10. Because I had been training with DRY ICE Tools, I had no problems at all."
Emmett and Finlayson established the wild looking mixed climb in December of 2013 calling it 100% Proof, M10. This was Finlayson’s first ice climb. Emmett said it was the first place he has climbed that is similar to Helmcken Falls, “Top pitch we climbed is about M9/10. You couldn’t climb it if it wasn’t iced up. Amazing atmosphere next to the falls too, so fun. It’s out of this world.”
From Finlayson’s Facebook: This was by far wildest thing I have ever done! What an amazing experience. Tim Emmett crushed a new M10 route up Brandywine Falls, naming it 100% Proof and I had the pleasure to belay him. I am super excited to be a part of the team. This was my first ice/mixed climb! What a place to learn. I managed to do all of the moves.
