Traverse Peak
Traverse Peak is at the north end of a 3km-long ridge between Snowshoe and Stokke Creeks. It is the highest peak in the Lillooet Ranges south of the Nahatlatch River (i.e. in the Harrison East/Southern Lillooet Ranges Area). Traverse Peak is most easily approached from the 7200ft col, 1km west of Mt Breakenridge. Descend from the col ~200m into a shallow, glaciated hollow. Traverse Peak may be climbed directly from the south via steep snow slopes or from along the long ridge to its SE.

1. Access Via Snowshoe Creek Road Snowshoe Creek road is badly overgrown with alder, after leaving Silver Main. The only known survivors of this approach received a horrible thrashing. It's a dark hole encircled with cliff bands and slabby bluffs
2. Access Via
Stokke Creek Road Off Harrison Lake. Inaccessible to private vehicles.
3. South Slopes NTD . Approach from the south is NTD. Some class three reported on sub-peaks further south (if traversing from Breakenridge). Refer to CAJ 1978.
