Valhalla Gold 

This is a Photo essay on a recent day trip to climb the route  Valhalla Gold on Mt. Gimli.

Photos by the talented Timothy McAllister 📷

This route was put up by David Lussier and friends, finished last fall. It’s high quality. More information can be found on the Facebook page Called “Kootenay Climbing”.

Mt. Gimli in the Valhallas “Heaven in Paradise “

I felt like I was in a Scandinavian fairy tale – I kept looking for trolls under the cedar bows and When I heard rumbles of Rockwell, I looked for signs of Thor.
