In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Raphael Slawinski in the Canadian Rockies

Raphael Slawinski involved in significant ascents of two major walls in the Canadian Rockies: one by a first winter ascent, and the other by a new route.

Raphael Slawinski in the Canadian Rockies

Slawinski, Eamonn Walsh, and Ian Welsted climbed the 4,200-foot Greenwood-Jones Route (IV/V 5.9 in summer; M6 in winter) on Mt. Temple during two full days of climbing, and a third day of slogging  to the 11,624-foot summit in high winds and descend.
The team camped one night halfway up the route on easier terrain, and a second night higher up at technical difficulties. The seconds followed each pitch, but last.  Last pitch was lead by Raphael in the dark and the seconds ascended the ropes using t-blocks. 
Slawinski had previously made the first winter ascents of the Greenwood-Locke and the Robinson-Orvig on Temple. Ten days later, Steve House and Roger Strong climbed the Greenwood-Jones on Temple in a 25.5-hour push from a camp located at the bottom of the face.  The team has free climbed all pitched, but A0-ed the last due to cold and darkness.
Later on Raphael Slawinski and Pierre Darbellay  completed a first ascent of Dogleg Couloir on the east face of Mt. Chephren. The team has started on March 22nd and topped out on March 24th. Slawinski gave the climb M7 A1 rating.
