Last fall Marc Adamus told me about an extremely remote area in the Canadian Rockies nestled between some of the tallest peaks in the region. He gave me some insight on getting there and exploring, which included landing a chopper on a small slab of rock and downclimbing down a mountain. That seemed to be a little over my head as there was no info to be found on the route Marc suggested, so I continued to do research through the winter. I eventually came across an alternate route, which included 30 miles of bushwacking and 30 miles of packrafting. It was out of the way from where Marc suggested, but during the research process I found some other peaks that looked Himalayan-like almost, glaciated and super jagged. It seemed like a great adventure. I mentioned the trip to others and eventually convinced Max Foster and Ben Prom to join me this summer. We did the trip three weeks ago and it was more of an adventure than photo trip, as the light wasn’t the greatest and it ended up being the toughest backcountry trip that I’ve ever done. I’ll include more trip details in a future post. We camped 1/4 mile from this waterfall unknowingly and came across it the next day. We were supposed to have a full day of hiking, but decided to camp here because of the amazing alignment of elements. We never got the great light, but had to process something. The waterfall was awesome and we worked hard for it, very hard.
