A new low pass in the Canadian Rockies (4,250 feet) is reported by Prentiss N. Gray in The Geographical Journal for August, 1932 with a good map. It crosses the continental divide about seven miles to the northwest of Mt. Ida in the Jarvis Pass district and connects the Narraway branch of the Wapiti with the northeast fork of the McGregor (Fraser drainage). It lies approximately in longitude 120° 30'. (See map A.A.J., 1930, p. 1118.) The party reports the route as favorable for a railway from Beverlodge, Alberta, to Dome Creek on the Canadian National R. R. New elevations are given for Mt. Ida (10,135 feet) and Sir Alexander (10,980 feet).
