Life on the Vertical
Mark Synnott March 21, 2013

Mark Synnott is renowned in the climbing world for his many big wall and alpine climbing adventures. His travels have taken him on more than 25 expeditions to places like Alaska, Baffin Island, Greenland, Iceland, Patagonia, Guyana, Pakistan, Nepal, India, China, Tibet, Cameroon, Chad, Borneo, and Pitcairn Island. One of the first climbers to explore Baffin Island's remote east coast, Mark has been on five trips to the island, and has pioneered four big wall first ascents in the area, including a grade VII on the 4,700-foot north face of Polar Sun Spire -- an epic wall that required the team to spend 36 nights in portaledges. Two years later, Mark returned to the same area with a team of North Face Athletes to produce a big wall climbing documentary for the National Geographic Society –one of six National Geographic-sponsored expeditions he has participated in. Copies of Mark's book, Baffin Island: Climbing, Trekking & Skiing, will be available for purchase and book signing.
