Filming for National Geographic, Destination Canada with Emily Harrington.

One of the coolest projects of our summer: working with Bryan Smith of Reel Water Productions to get epic drone aerials of pro climber Emily Harrington adventuring around BC for National Geographic

We started day 1 filming along the Cheakamus River in between Squamish and Whistler. Set in a deep canyon the river flows quickly by numerous climbing area. The first half of the day was an arete near the water. In the afternoon we moved up to the upper lip of the canyon to do a 5.11 sport climb with an amazing backdrop.

Day 2 was on the top of Blackcomb mountain to film the gorgeous area know as Showcase Spire, a rock climbers dream.

Day 3 We flew in a helicopter out to the Pemberton Glacier to explore the icecaps, a surreal and beautiful experience everyone should put on bucket list.

Day 4 brought up better weather so we did some stand up paddle boarding and returned to showcase spire to climb it in the nicer light.
