Get Me Off This Mountain
A shot taken last weekend just below the summit of colossal Mount Sir Douglas. After spending several hours tackling winter-like conditions on the west ridge of the peak and seeing the sun make a slushy mess of the route, all four of us had one thing on our mind at that point despite the glorious weather and enchanting views: “Get me off this mountain”. This was our first rappel out of the monochrome alpine world and back into the vibrant colours of the valley. Mount Sir Douglas, West Ridge, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.
