Matt Maddaloni and John Millar put up this twelve-pitch aid route over eight days on the formation Carag-Dur. Carag-Dur, although it is among the smaller walls in the valley, easily rivals the chief. Good Luck.

Any party attempting this route should remember to bring at least 40 heads and 25 bird beaks.

Colin Dionne gets very honorable mention in Matt Maddaloni's Canadian Alpine Journal article about their grade VI adventure. (CAJ, 2000)

After posting my red line on John Waters' photo, I found Colin Dionne's beta on his useful website (green line after clicking link). He was of great assistance to Matt Maddaloni and John Millar; solving vehicle troubles in the wilderness, bridge building, and brush fighting five hours up to meet the FA at the top.
