Southern Purcells Traverse

Andrew –  Mt Klahowya

After much anticipation and preparation, seven days of spectacular remote mountains, huge climbs, long days, steep chutes, epic powder runs, snow camping and camaraderie, Andrew Gross Jordy Hall and I completed the Southern Purcells traverse (Dewar Creek to Toby Creek). In cold, snowy and stable conditions, we found just the right amount of challenge. More later.

    Hi,

    We are planning a traverse from Dewar to Toby this July and was hoping to get some information. I have spent time in most of the areas covered by this traverse, but have never connected the pieces. I was wondering if you would be willing to share route info? Specifically, the connections between Toby glacier and Granite Creek and Granite Creek to Dewar Hot Springs. We had planned to cross out of Granite Creek via the Lees/Clutterbuck col, but I don’t know how feasible the back side is?

    At any rate, any information is appreciated!
