(2) Pipestone Croup Dolomite Peak, 9828 ft. First ascent, June 30. J. M. Thorington, P. Kaufmatin. From Bow Lake by way of rock slides and meadows across a high shoulder to the foot of Dolomite pass. The fourth tower, counting from the north, is the highest point. The head of the valley is rounded to a point on the west slope between the third and fourth towers. A rib and a long, narrow snow-couloir form the line of ascent to the depression between these towers. The highest tower then requires a traverse on its face until a snowy cleft, immediately north of the highest point is reached. Bow Lake to foot of Dolomite pass, 3 hours 30 minutes. Descent to Bow Lake, 4 hours, 30 minutes.
