Battle Range Mountaineering
July 27 - August 4, 2001
"Rare indeed is the alpinist who can gaze dispassionately upon
the summits of Mt Butters, Moby Dick Mtn, and Mt Proteus, rising nearly
2000 metres in sweeping walls of firm rock and glistening ice from the
deep valley of Battle Brook. The sense of remoteness and isolation, of
true mountaineering wilderness, is very marked. An area of undeniable
grandeur and ruggedness."
[Other organized trips, past and future]
Location: The Battle Range is south of Glacier National Park
(Canada). The best access is via helicopter. There is not a hut. There
is something for everyone in this area - you don't need to be an accomplished
or highly experienced alpinist to enjoy this area. In addition to
alpine climbing there is plenty of hiking and scrambling and general
exploration of this beautiful and remote area.

Information which was assembled and posted prior to the trip, including
some things on a possible alpine traverse from the Battle Range back
to Rogers Pass. This was not done since there was insufficient interest.
