Currently I have been touring around British Columba, Canada. Its been 13 days now and I sure have travelled some miles! We left the small town of Bingen, Washingon State and headed far far North. After almost 30+ hours of non stop driving we made it to the put in of the Grand Canyon of the Stikine. It was a crazy feeling being back there and knowing I was in for the most epic 3 day paddling mission ever!
The classic put in shot. I was stoked to put on this amazing river with such a sick solid crew.
Louis Geltman running 3 Goats
Jared and Evan running a rather large rapid above pass fail. The scary thing about this is that if you miss the eddy on river right you will be running pass fail blind
Following Jared way to close on pass fail. I managed to pass but at the same time I pushed Jared into the fail zone, sorry bro. He did style the fail line though!!
Kyle and Louis cleaning the pass fail move
Making the pass and some where in there is jared. (Image Louis Geltman)
Jared running wasons!!
None of us want to have a bar of the left side of wasons hole so we all chose the easy option by running the hard right side what was still in play!!!
Try spot the goat (site Zed camp day 1)
Looking down into site zed (day 1 camp)
Kyle running AFP. This one was dam scary! It was pretty hard to miss the two big holes on river left and right. Stoked we all made it through this one without any beat downs!
Jared and Johnson making it out the bottom of AFP
One of the most Glorious Sections of the run, Wall 1. Such an amazing horizon line
Yours truley running ‘Garden of the Gods 1’. One of the many very stout section on the run.

Getting a nice tail stall frew the Garden of the gods
Day 2 camp (wolf Track) The weather was on our side this trip and we had 25+ degress everyday! It was so hot that we all went for a dip at Wolf tracks
This is what you get for breakfast on day 3 (Garden of the Gods 2) Jared and Kyle make there way down the most continuas section of the Stikine
EG running wall 2. Evan got really beat down in this one and it sure was dam scary to watch. He made it out in his boat all okay. I was pretty fired up to run this one as I walked it last year. But after seeing EG get really beat down we all decided to take the easy Portage.
Jared sending ‘scissors’. This one is really big but good to go!!!!
Myself and Evan sending the last big ‘V drive’. The stoke is sooooooooo high once you get to the bottom of this one!
Jared and Lewis getting there V drive on
Well It was a pretty surreal feeling getting back in there and completing another successful decent of the Grand Canyon of the Stikine. Nothing could have gone any better for us hot warm weather, epic crew, epic level HIGH STOKE!!!!
After our epic Stikine trip we made our way back to Whistler Squamash area where we were greated with heavy rain what jumped the levels up. We were lucky enough to get a really high water lap on Fear Canyon section of the Elaho, there was 300+ cumecs flowing down that thing. The next day we enjoy 3 laps down the Callaghan at a good water level the stoke way high for sure
Screen grab looking down into the main section of Fear Canyon (Elaho) ,so huge!
Kyle Hull steeping his game up and running the pinch at 300+ cumec with style!!!
