By training with DRY ICE Tools JAMIE FINLAYSON, mover and shaker in the Canadian climbing scene and frequent climbing partner with TIM EMMETT, sent his first ice climb, and it was an M10!

"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.
