Helmcken Falls, Clearwater

Helmcken Falls is a 141 m (463 ft) waterfall on the Murtle River within Wells Gray Provincial Park. The Falls is the fourth highest in Canada, (and almost three times higher than Niagra Falls) . A winter visit is worthwhile because the ice cone at the base often grows to 50 m tall (150 feet) tall. Climbers scale the ice falls and it is currently the hardest mixed-route ice and rock climb in the world (and in the Red Bull top 7 climbs overall). A Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
