Helmcken Falls in Well Grey Park, BC, Canada.

During the winter an enormous cone of ice and snow forms around the base of the falls, with ice also covering the sides of the canyon and producing an extremely challenging environment for ice climbers. On this occasion climber Will Gadd was being filmed from the helicopter, his line of ascent can be seen as a dark line to the left of the waterfall.
