Helm Creek Headwaters # 4934

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2003.09.22
Vantage Point: From Helm Glacier

Caption: Headwaters of Helm Creek, with Sphinx above, and Castle Towers on the far left.

PhotoDescr: Lots of scrambling around the Helm Pass area. Leave behind the crowds of trekkers plodding between Garibaldi and Cheakamus.

We approached this area from the Helm Creek Trail, which is accessed via the good trail towards Cheakamus Lake. A bit of grunt work gets you to a great campsite in the Helm Creek Meadows. Lots of options exist from here including Castle Towers via Gentian Pass, Helm Peak, Corrie Lake/Peak, Cinder Cone, Gentian Peak, or even a traverse to Garibaldi Lake.
