We went with Kluane airways: http://www.kluaneairways.com/unclimbables.html
Warren is a legend and will look after you well, he also does a great job as the closest thing the Cirque has to a caretaker. Floatplane between 4 and hike in is the cheapest, but its worth looking at getting the heli in as you avoid a very tough walk, gain a climbing day, and can take far more food and luxuries. We got lucky - paid for the floatplane but got heli-ed in as the floatplane was being serviced! For a real adventure you can paddle in and out by kayak or pack-raft.
I'd plan on ten days as a minimum in the cirque. The weather is not great (not dissimilar to UK), and you want to get your money's worth!
Iv sent you an email mate.
There was a very young German team there at the time who planned to hike out to the river and float it. That is big adventure. Don't underestimate how far out in the woods you are with this one.
Get the heli, get the heli.
If you get sick of rainy walks in the meadow whilst you wait for a weather window, there's lots of steep bouldering and the odd bolted line.
I think that was called Il Pinguino. Not much consolation for the trip in. ;)

We called it the Cobra, not our name, from somewhere else.
