Calaghan Creek Race 2011

without comments

Wednesday, July 20. The Callaghan was too high to paddle. With the massive snowpack that fell during the winter of 2010/2011 and the dismal summer that we’ve been having in southwest BC it really looked like the Callaghan Race would have to diverted to a race on the upper Cheak because of high water – a bit of a bummer after all the training runs and the stoke that had been building for the few weeks prior to the event.

Just 2 days later the rain stopped, it stayed cloudy and it got very cool – Mother Nature realized how nice it would be to have a race on the Callaghan and basically turned off the taps, dropping the Callaghan down every day thereafter. While we were still uncertain what to do on Friday night, we got there on Saturday morning to see the level had dropped out to almost the same level as the race in 2010 – game on!

The morning started out with one of the best parts of the weekend – a massive group paddle down the river, with about 20-25 bodies on the water checking out the lower water level and cheering each other on.

Once 4pm rolled around, 8 teams decided to challenge the river and each other, with participants from all over BC and Alberta. This year we were graced with no carnage during the race with clean runs all around (well, clean runs were had by the racers….). Maxi and Ric, two summertime Whister locals, walked away with the win, absolutely smashing the winning time from the year before by about 30 seconds. Perhaps most impressive is the short time span between the winners and everyone who came after – some of these guys only ran the Callaghan 2 or 3 times prior to firing up the race. Congratulations to everyone who participated!

Here are the full results:

Maxi Kniewasser/Ric Moxon – 15:43
Sam Ricketts/Greg Dashper – 16:09
Mark Basso/Mikkel St. Jean-Duncan – 16:13
Matt Kompass/Andrew Slater – 17:07
Ali Marshall/Steve Arns – 18:00
Hector Darby Maclellan/Chris Ryman – 18:36
Adrian Kiernan/Jared Taylor – 18:37
Shane Kroeger/Paul Harwood – 19:19

I think it’s fair to say the 2nd Callaghan Race was a great success. Perfect weather, good flows, an excellent crew of participants, volunteers and spectators and of course a great after party made for a one hell of a day. What next year will hold in terms of weather and water is always a question (maybe it will be a bit lower for a change!), but there’s no doubt that the Callaghan Race is here to stay.

KS magazine used an image from a spring trip down the Homathko river in the central coast area of British Columbia. The image is of Steve Arns and Peter Murphy  preparing for a cold night at camp two just above the Mosley/Tiedman Trifluence.

This area is one of the more dramatic areas of the trip with large impressive peaks all around, the entry of the Tiedman glacier and BC’s highest peak Mt Waddington looking down upon you, right before the river doubles in volume and enters the fearful Tragedy canyons.

Classically this trip is under taken in the late summer early autumn when the river is at it’s lowest flows before the rainy season begins. We opted to gamble on the spring melt being a little late and holding off long enough for us to pass through the canyons with manageable water levels. Words do little justice to the scale and beauty of the place.¬† It is hard to describe the feeling these places give, I guess there is a simplification process involved to some degree. Having only the basic needs covered and being alone with only your kayak and a sleeping bag strips you back to a simple animal far less cluttered and free.

Rapid Magazine recently printed this shot from the Ashlu box canyon. This shot was actually a out-take from a quest for a shot that still has not worked.

Whilst paddling the box canyon there is one view that kayakers get when they exit the third of the triple drops, it looks directly back upstream at all the drops stacked upon each other in the super dramatic box canyon. To me this is the absolute essence of the run as it captures the total commitment of the canyon and the impressive vertical drop of the rapids which is very hard to achieve from an aerial prospective. So far though the only way that I can achieve the positioning is via a fleeting glance from the kayak as you pass through the exit pinch. Maybe there is no other way to feel that feeling, other than in a kayak, who knows ? What I do know is I have been very close using some SRT rope techniques, but still not quite got there. I suspect I may be chasing that shot for sometime to come.
