Will Gadd climbing Sea Stacks at Petty Harbor, Newfoundland, Canada

These are terra incognita – nobody has climbed these things. We don’t know how to get on them, we don’t know how to get off them… we don’t even know if they’ll stay standing! Nothing’s ever easy… if it was then somebody would have done it already!
