Join the wild bunch of Jacob Cook, Bronwyn Hodgins, Angela Vanwiemeersch, Kelsey Watts and Zack Goldberg-Poch, along with professional filmmaker Jaron Pham, as they take on a modern day expedition in Greenland. They kayak 450 km to access ‘Sanderson’s Hope’ – an 800m wall rising straight from the Arctic Ocean and the perfect venue for a futuristic big wall free climb. It has never seen a free ascent and these guys intend to be the first. This will be a groundbreaking adventure.

Jaron is a photographer, filmmaker, and rock climber based out of Squamish, BC. Climbing rocks has been a medium for him to fall in love with the natural world, and his hope is that the films and imagery he creates will somehow help others to experience the same thing. He also hopes to be still climbing rocks when he’s 75. Jaron finds refuge in the remote, and enjoys waiting out storms under rocks.
Bronwyn is a professional climber and ACMG Rock Guide based in Squamish, Canada. From 13d sport and trad, to big wall first ascents in Greenland and Baffin Island, to becoming the first Canadian woman to free climb El Capitan in Yosemite, Bronwyn’s passion and ambitious goals have taken her around the globe.
Jacob is a professional climber, mathematics professor and Bronwyn Hodgins’ husband based in Squamish, Canada. Jacob’s climbing accomplishments are wide-ranging, including a new route on Mount Asgard, 14b sport climbs, ground up slab first ascents in Squamish and multiple free ascents of El Cap – but the climbs that keep Jacob awake at night are big wall first ascents on the world’s biggest, most remote walls.
