MULTIPLICITY 2016: Jasmin Caton: Climbing to Keep the Interior Wild

Jasmin Caton was born and raised in BC’s Selkirk Mountains and was skiing and hiking in the backcountry practically before she could walk. In her early 20s, she was introduced to rock climbing and instantly felt she’d found her place in the obsessed, road-tripping, dirt-bagging circus of traveling rock climbers. Caton is now an ACMG (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides) Rock and Ski Guide and the owner/operator of Valhalla Mountain Touring, a ski touring lodge in the Selkirk Mountains that specializes in steep trees and deep pow. She currently calls Squamish, BC home.

 

 

About her presentation:
In the summer of 2015, Caton and Kate Rutherford journeyed deep into the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy with packs stuffed full of climbing gear and a hunger for good rock. Their trip resulted in the completion of two new routes and a heightened appreciation for the capacity of high quality, unexplored alpine rock climbing within BC’s vast mountains, as well as the importance of protecting wild places for generations of mountain adventurers to come.
