Jaw-dropping video from Lotus Flower Tower

The Lotus Flower Tower is a gorgeous 2500 foot located at the Cirque of the Unclimbables in the Northwest Territory of Canada.  Featuring 19 pitches of free climbing, this route is featured in Steve Roper and Allen Steck’s book Fifty Classic Climbs of North America, and is considered by many to be one of the most aesthetically beautiful rock faces in the world.

 

 

 

The video below was from an ascent by Janelle and Mark Smiley, who are striving to become the first people to complete all 50 of the routes in Roper and Steck’s book.  You can check on their progress, see their blog, and view more video at their website: smileysproject.com
