Mamquam Falls: Welcome to B.C.

We arrived in B.C. late in the afternoon on Tuesday after driving 12 hours frm Bozeman MT. After stopping by the golf course and looking at Furry creek we drove to the town of Squamish and looked at the massive Mamquam falls at 22 meters or like 60-70 feet tall. With the water being at a slightly low flow for the drop to be prime Myself and Cheese hucked it the next morning with some of the YGP boys running saftey for us, they ran it two days before us at a higher flow.

60-70 to fall at this point it was mighty huge!

Cheese correcting his angle about 10 feet down.

I ran first and slightly piched imploding on impact and paddling safely away from the cave. Cheese ran right after me landing about 60-70 degrees getting ripped from his kayak and beat down in the base of the falls. He resurfaced away from the cave and retrived his boat by attaching it to himself and paddling out with my boat. I think that a bit more water would have made the drop better but the cave worse, we both had good lines off it but the landing was a bit less soft and the lip less forgiving. This is a big one and it rarely runs due to the dam upstream. What's next for us who knows. Later E.G.
