The duo hoped to become the first team to summit Canada's third-highest mountain in the winter, but have been forced to aim for a different peak due to weather and terrain conditions.

A "sump" — an underground channel filled to the roof with water — discovered in the Bisaro Anima cave during a previous expedition in October 2017. On January 1, 2018, caver Kathleen Graham was able to explore the sump in scuba gear and confirm Bisaro Anima as the deepest cave in Canada. (Photo: Jared Habiak/Bisaro Plateau Caves Project)
