Selkirks. While doing geology, Hamish Mutch and I climbed most of the peaks in the Fang Creek, Downie Lake, Purity Range and Van Horne Névé areas. Innovations included a new route on Mount Wheeler via the longest ridge from Thor Glacier; new routes on Mount Durand (on the ice from the northeast) and peaks north and east of it; the summit (“White Fang”) southwest of Grey Fang over a strange white schist; new routes on the south face of Mount Sisson and on adjacent peaks; and Mount Moloch from Mount Baal. The latter follows the northwest ridge of Moloch, keeping right at difficulties.
