Who, is Greg Ashcroft?
Greg is a flatlander who means business in the ice climbing world. He has been training the past year for a shot at the UIAA world cup in Denver Colorado. For those of you that don’t know, this is the real deal for ice climbing! The top comp. The pièce de résistance! Competing for Team Canada and sponsored by the Alpine Club of Canada – Manitoba Section, Greg is keen, cool and hoping to collect a prize. He will compete in both the lead and speed categories. . A dedicated member and volunteer for the Manitoba section of the Alpine Club of Canada and hailing from Winnipeg which boasts the longest ice skating rink in Canada also has the tallest freestanding ice climbing structure where Greg’s speed training takes place. The rest of the year he retreats to the man cave in his garage for drytooling practice. To top it off, Greg will be documenting his trip and making a presentation after he recovers from the screaming barfies. Remember where you heard about Greg Ashcroft first! – Simon Statkewich (ACC-MB President)
We at the Manitoba section wish him all the best and luck!
