The 1911 Alpine Club of Canada–Smithsonian Robson Expedition was led by Arthur Oliver Wheeler [1860–1945]. On the Robson River below Emperor Falls, Wheeler in described “a second big fall of 150 feet. It suggests the name of the ‘Fall of the Pool.’ Two-thirds of the way down is a tiny pool in the rock into which the water leaps; the lower part is more broken.”
