And the Winner Is…

Posted on: February 17th, 2010 by Erik Lambert

The results of the AAC video contest are in, and we’d like to offer congratulations to first-prize winner Peter Valchev, who submitted “Ice Climbing in the Ghost: Candlestick Maker and Hidden Dragon” and received over 4,000 views. Peter, an Osprey Mutant 38 pack is on it’s way to you!

Here’s a short description of the vid:

Ice climbing in the Ghost River Valley, Canada. Orient Point is a drainage that hosts several high-quality ice climbs that can be combined for a nice day. We climbed the easy approach ice and started off with a short pillar to the left of Hidden Dragon, after which we continued to Candlestick Maker, our real objective. It consists of a short & stout free standing pillar, pouring in front of a large cave. The second pitch is a longer version of the same.

This is a 3-minute compilation I made with my helmet camera to show parts of the experience. Soundtrack is “The Rapture – Sister Saviour (Blackstrobe Remix)”, Creative Commons licensed: Video created with Cinelerra for Linux. Photos & trip report:

Stay tuned for the 2nd and 3rd place finishers!
