ACC Social Night
Special Presentation by: Will Stanhope

Will started climbing at the Edge Climbing Centre as a kid in the mid nineties. When he was a teenager he started begging older climbers for rides up the Sea To Sky highway often with best buddies Dave Nykyforuk and Jason Kruk.

After completing high school he left on a "one year" road trip with Kruk in a Navy Blue 1987 Chevy cargo van armed with a fake ID that looked nothing like him. They arrived in Yosemite awestruck and intimidated, but what they lacked in big wall experience they made up for in gung-ho enthusiasm.

Teaming up with Jeremy Blumel and Craig McGee they made a "one-day" ascent of the Nose of El Capitan in 27 hours. Later in the trip they climbed Half Dome and topped out in a brewing storm.

Hooked on big walls, he has yet to return to post secondary education, to the disappointment of his parents.

Will is coming out for the evening to discuss his recent adventures with his climbing partner and good friend Leo Houlding about their futuristic projects in the Bugaboos and adventures in Patagonia.

Stay after the presentation to share stories with your fellow club members and even find partners for your next exciting upcoming trip!
