Frederick Schuett: Ziplining over Active Volcanos

Sign up to RAD news

Frederick ‘One Axe’ Schuett, is an ice climber, extreme expedition leader, professional volcano zipliner and the founder of ONE AXE Pursuits and One AXE Extreme

Elora, Ontario native Frederick started climbing when he was 10 years old when he and his friends found an extension cord in his Dad’s garage and used it to scramble hills in the local area. At 18 he took his first ice-climbing course in the Rockies and said to the instructor that the glacier they were climbing wasn’t challenging enough. The instructor took one of his two climbing axes away and his nickname ‘One Axe Fred’ was born. 

Frederick went on to being part of a National Geographic documentary ziplining the ‘Door to Hell’ crater in Turkmenistan. He’s done world first stunts like lowering VIP clients into a volcano crater and led ziplining expeditions over an active lava lake in Ethiopia and Sir Richard Branson’s urban zipline stunt to launch Virgin Mobile. 

Back at home he operates One AXE Pursuits for the past 20 years which teaches people to rock climb, ice climb and runs ziplining and mountaineering courses. 

Tune in to find out more about how Fred got into ziplining volcanos and what projects he has in the works. It’s going to be fire!

The concept for Rad Season came about when I was trekking around Latin America. I found it difficult to find cool events and festivals going on that were a bit different and had an element of adventure and general radness to them. I knew that there was always something rad worth going to somewhere in the world, but there was no single platform bringing them together for like-minded people. With over 15 years experience in international business development, spanning multiple industries including action sports, events, media, digital, ICT, travel and tourism, I decided to combine them all with Rad Season.
