Gadd conquers frozen Niagara

2 MINUTES READ

A lifelong climbing mission at the famous wonderland

Famous landmark that straddles the border between Canada and the USA freezing over again this winter, but back in 2015, Canadian Will Gadd became the first person ever to to ascend the frozen sections of the world’s largest flowing waterfall Niagara Falls. Gadd scaled 140 feet on the northern part of Horseshoe Falls starting from the frozen river base of Niagara River and climbing to Terrapin Point on Goat Island.

After being born in the USA and living in Canada most of his life, the border climb was especially poignant for Gadd who was nominated for the Laureus World Sports Award for Action Sportsperson of the Year in 2002 thanks to his climbing and fearless paragliding exploits.

He said, ‘I’ve traveled the world in search of the most challenging climbs, but Niagara Falls, one of my home country’s most iconic landmarks, has been a lifelong mission that I previously never thought possible.’
