The first ascent of the South-West Face of Monarch in the Canadian Coast Mountains. In August 2017 Simon Richardson and Micha Rinn made the first ascent of Game of Thrones, a 1250m-long route on the previously unclimbed south-west face of Monarch in the Waddington Range. Similar in scale and difficulty to the Walker Spur on the Grandes Jorasses though more serious, Simon will describe the events leading to the successful ascent.
