Climbers Pay $1000 Fine for BASE Jumping Off Mount Asgard
Leo Houlding, Sean Leary and Carlos Quiroga Suarez have each been fined $1000 for BASE jumping off Mount Asgard during the filming of the Asgard Project in 2009. The trio accepted their fines in return for having formal charges dropped as BASE jumping is illegal under the Canadian National Parks Act.
Two Australians are scheduled to appear in court in November to face similar charges after paragliding off Mount Thor in Auyuittuq this summer.
