Area: 713 sq km.Location: East of the Homathko Icefield, south of Bishop River, north of Toba River and Filer Creek, and west of the Lillooet Icefield, this range is one of the more remote and infrequently visited parts of the southern Coast Mountains.
Terrain: The Compton Neve is the largest glacier, but there is continuous ice from the Lillooet to the Tahumming headwaters. Gilbert and Raleigh are the largest peaks; there are numerous smaller ones. The area around the heads of Montrose and Filer Creeks is a wilderness of steep granite spires and valley walls.
History: The "10,000 footers" Gilbert and Raleigh were first climbed in the 1950's. John Clarke and John Baldwin (with others, including Bruce Fairley, Rob Driscoll and Jean Heinemann) made the first traverses and accounted for most of the remaining peaks in the 1980's. There are still some unclimbed peaks, and numerous unclimbed routes, in the area. There are big technical lines on some peaks near the Tahumming, and two Grade V, 5.10 routes on Gilbert (Friendly Giant and West Pillar).
