Paddling across Glacier Lake towards the Cirque, 3 kbOur plan was to canoe the Little Nahanni and Nahanni rivers, a twenty-day white-water trip that would bring us within striking distance of the Cirque of the Unclimbables, home to the Lotus Flower Tower. Once there our mission was simple: "Get Bron's dad Geoff to the top of the Tower"!

Jacob Cook recounts his summer adventures combining canoeing and climbing in Canada with his girlfriend Bronwyn and her family, an unconventional family holiday of special significance.

What a great trip. That sounds like a fantastic few weeks of adventure and fun.

[without wanting to trivialise the adventure, the best bit for me: Thor Mountainside! Best climber's name in the world!!]

Jealous! Thanks so much for taking the time to write it up!

Sitting in those hot springs in that location after a good hard days work must have felt pretty good - fired off some primal reward mechanisms.

Great write up. Having done Lotus flower 'lite' with heli in and perfect weather, I'm seriously impressed. I wouldn't want to be on that headwall in the rain!

Looks like a lot of snow about, were you early in the season?

Thanks Adam . It was a pretty exposed position!

Yep we were early season, pretty sure we were the first climbers in the Cirque this year, I guess we were on the tower around the 20th of June.
