Hey Werner, do you know anything about that rope that Kim and Rick dropped? They already have sacrificed it to the gods but I thought it would be cool if they could get it back.

hey you guys might be interested in this route. It is located about 3 hours north of vancouver and rises straight out of Seton lake. Literally you have to step out of the boat with crampons and tools ready for action!

They are measured at 420 meters in elevation gain, which equals 1386 ft by my calculation. There is at least one other route in the Bridge river zone (the gift) that is similar in length, continuity, difficulty etc. Of course there are longer ones in the Rockies like Slipstream and polar circus. At least I think they are longer. Also back east is Le Pomme Dor in Quebec, maybe the most beautiful continuously long waterfall route in north America.

Great ascent

I want Paul to call me the next time it's formed like you found it

That Stewart Johnson guy looks a little worked over,
how old is he, ~70ish, good on him for dragging his ass up it.
He looks familar, maybe I've seem him around before

wow! great info in those links -- thanks

Bruce was also featured on the cover of the 2009 CAJ, climbing a new ice route called Piss and Vinegar at Seton Lake. WI5,9 pitches,420m or 1,400 feet. Being in Canada, and located on a lake, access was of course by canoe.

Two of the other parties that went up the WT in January 2013 are Greg Loniewski and Jason Torlano (2013-01-03), followed by Florian Dörlfer and X (I forgot his partner's name) about a week later. Greg and Jason made the trail back to Hwy 41.
