Early Fall the crew banded together and started pinning it straight north. Destination= Stikine! The Grand Canyon of the Stikine holds some of the biggest, gnarliest whitewater on planet earth. It is regarded as one of the most challenging overnight river trips, and lies in deep, dark northern british columbia. After a solid 25 hours in the car, the crew arrived to the put-in blessed with perfect weather, perfect flows and a perfect crew. We spent 3 days in the insanely beautiful canyon in which Ben Marr logged the first complete descent of the Stikine by paddling every rapid, Including the never previously run SIte Zed. There were huge rapids, sick lines, beautiful views, and most importantly good times all around. It was the river-trip of a lifetime. We got off the Stikine feeling blessed to have had such a great trip. To finish off the trip we headed south to the BC classics! After paddling the Elk we headed to Squamish where classics like Ashlu Box, Tatlow Creek, and Fear Canyon provided a perfect end to a trip. Way up where the polar bears roam a free, people live in igloos, moose come a knockin, and the drink of choice is a glacier fresh kokanee. BC, EH!
