In August of 2006, Justen Sjong, Chris Weidner, and photographer Celin Serbo traveled to Newfoundland to climb new routes up the granite walls surrounding Devils Bay. As the crew was setting up camp, Hurricane Florence made its way up the East Coast of the United States. It arrived on the southeastern coast of the island, as a tropical storm, not long after the climbers started knocking off routes. A local fishermen spied the group’s remote base camp and offered to take the climbers to a vacant cabin on a neighboring bay. “Without the fisherman’s rescue, the expedition would have ended,” says Serbo. “The camp would not have survived the storm."
