Whiteman Falls, WI 6
  • Whiteman Falls, IV, WI 6/ 95 meters.
  • This is a two pitch route at the end of the canyon. The first pitch is blessed with incredible mushrooms, which make the route easier than WI 6, but present interesting climbing issues of their own. The second pitch is full on sustained WI 6. We took the route up the right side which placed us on a hanging belay, not good if you have kidney issues. According to Joe Josephson’s “Waterfall Ice, Climbs in the Canadian Rockies”, you can find a comfortable cave for your mid pitch belay if you take the left line. The left line looks to be an easier line to climb as well regarding both pitches. We climbed both pitches to the right moving towards the center at the top of the second pitch.

    Looks more like a hard piece of work. The ice looks fantastic. All you need are steady nerves and a very good technique.

    It is a wild ride. The mushrooms are a load of fun. The verticle 2nd pitch is just hard work. Cheers.
