Not that anyone should rely on my old guidebooks when they have your recent and wonderful report, but when I was looking at this trip many years ago I came across descriptions in Cameron, A and Gunn, M., Hikes around Invermere & the Columbia River Valley (1998) and in Copeland, K. and C., Gotta Hike BC (2001). I don’t know if either of these books is still in print or available, but if you’re looking for more adventure in more remote parts of the Canadian Rockies it might be worth trying to find these resources.

Years late but I realized I followed only a couple of the companion threads. I have tried to get a couple of the older books, and take them with a grain of sand. I think the best way to get ahold of those is through Thriftbooks. I still haven’t managed to get my hands on either of those.
