Selkirk Range: Battle Group. Successes of 1947 in the Battle Group are further described in two papers: C.A.J., XXI (1948), 1 ff. and 140 ff.

In 1948 B. G. Ferris, Jr., A. J. Kauffman, 2nd, and W. L. Putnam followed S. B. Hendricks’ 1946 route into the Granite (Adamant) Group and three weeks later emerged at Flat Creek, eight miles W. of Glacier, B. C. Their expedition is described in an article in this issue, and the route is there summarized.

This route was planned by Hendricks, who in 1948 followed it in the reverse direction, accompanied by A. C. Fabergé, D. Hubbard, C. Scoredos and A. Peterson. The two parties met at Moberly Pass. Hendricks’ party made first ascents of Martha and Eric, two peaks W. of Tangier summit, and of Silvertip, in the Sir Sandford area. They also ascended Mts. Holway and Sorcerer, Belvedere and Thor in the Sir Sandford area, and (from a final camp N. of the Adamant Group) Turret.
