Events Description

It’s no secret that Will Gadd is a legendary ice climber. He’s climbed everything from Niagara Falls to Helmcken Falls to disappearing ice on Kilimanjaro. So what’s his next big feat? Using his skills in climbing and guiding skills to help scientists to help scientists better understand glaciers and how they move and melt. In October of 2018, that purpose took Gadd to Greenland where he and Dr. Jason Gulley made an unprecedented trip into the Greenland ice sheet. The Beneath the Ice tour is the story of that trip and so much more.

Climbing sessions: Gadd will spend some time on the floor to coach you through climbing technique while engaging in conversation on the project.
