Part Two: Journey To The Stikine And The Sacred Headwaters from the Mountain Mid Collective.
Part two of the Journey to the Stikine and the Sacred Headwaters tells the story of the team’s decision to run the notorious Site Zed rapid. Site Zed has only been run a handful of times since the first descent by Ben Marr in 2012. The rapid begins at the same place that BC Hydro planned to build one of two mega-dams on the Stikine that would have flood the entire canyon above. After their portagless descent of the Stikine, the crew returns to learn more about the fight to save the Stikine and Sacred Headwaters from a massive mine that poses extreme environmental risks to the surrounding environment and rivers.
