Chrysalis Expedition, Journey from the Monarch Icefield to the Pacific Ocean

Dave Pearson

The objective of Dave’s expedition is to explore the Monarch Icefield south of Bella Coola on skis in search of first descents and wide open spaces as he moves toward the transition point and descends to the head of the Talchako River. He will then navigate the Talchako to the Bella Coola River at the confluence with the Atnarko River, and then to the ocean port at Bella Coola, completing a 100km float from source to saltwater.
