Mountain guide Crosby Johnson approaches the back of Helmcken Falls. The photo was taken with a wide angle lens, making the chamber at the rear of the falls appear deeper than it is. Tim Emmett and Klement Premrl, who first climbed the overhang to the top in 2012, were climbing while the photo was taken. See more images at www.avision.ca (links to Facebook and Instagram).
