Calgary BASE Jumper Dies Near Ha Ling in Canmore

Cameron Minni of Calgary had made one successful jump last weekend before hitch-hiking a ride to the trail up Ha Ling. Cindy Sleeman picked Minni up after his jump off EEOR. She said he was in good spirits and offered to lend her his bear spray for the day. Minni was found a few days later in Miners Gully below Miners Peak (a 2,423-metre summit between Ha Ling and Mount Lawrence Grassi), where he planed to jump from. Rescuers said they are unsure if Minni died after an intentional BASE jump or if he accidentally fell.

Minni was an experienced 36-year-old jumper who had jumped around the world. In 2015, Minni jumped from the 421-metre Kuala Lumpur Tower in Malaysia dressed as the Incredible Hulk with two other jumpers dressed as super heroes.
