Description

This is a fairly remote area. Access can be complicated due to the fact that this is in a wilderness area with no houses, businesses or towns nearby. In the event of an accident, rescue would be difficult. There is no real cell phone coverage here so a sat phone or Delorme In Reach are a good idea. The reward for the risk and hard work to get in this area is definitely worth it though. The climbing is superb, it has an alpine feel and the shear beauty of this place is quite breathtaking.

Getting There

Go to Sussex then head towards Poley Mountain on the Waterford Road. Keep driving on the same road passing Walton Lake, Adairs Wilderness lodge and Crawford Lake. Do not turn right after Adairs. The road takes a sharp turn left (east) but stay on it. After passing Crawford Lake take a right on the Little Salmon River Road. If you are lucky the road will be ploughed. If not you have a 9 kilometer ski or snowshoe ahead of you. At kilometer 9 you will see an orange sign that says Walton Glen Falls Trail. If you were able to drive a vehicle in, park here and start walking south for about 40 minutes (2k ish) through the woods. That will deposit you somewhere on the canyon rim. Find a descent gully to get to the bottom or rap in. Some parts of the canyon require two or three rapells on a 60 meter rope. Tie knots in the end of your rope!
