“In Light of the Challenges”

One of the most tense and challenging moments of the Bugaboo Spire Centennial Climb Project: Robert Le Blanc (left), Garry Reiss (centre) and Natalia Danalachi (right) in candle light settling down for a cold night before their first summit attempt. The circumstances of the recreated century-old camp forced the team to eat a cold dinner and to put up with the rain seeping underneath their wool blankets. Overcoming expedition challenges like these formed a much deeper bond between its team members. (Part of the ongoing 16-piece exhibition at the White Museum of the Canadian Rockies.)
