Sunset pass is the low point on the divide between Norman Creek and Pinto Lake. On the 1:50K map it is labelled in the wrong place.. The pass is on the boundary of Banff National Park and the Cline River drainage. The Cline River drainage is outside the park. The exact location of the pass on the 1:50,000 map is a bit confused. The label seems to be about 1 km East of the actual lowpoint. The lowpoint is between 2040m and 2080m contours. Hence the height of 2060m) FtrAccess: The pass can be most easily reached via the <a href=RoadxPg.asp?RoadxId=4363>Sunset Pass Trail</a>. FtrHistory: One of the first white men to record use of the pass was the legendary Arthur P. Coleman in 1893, while en-route to look for the legendary 16,000' peaks Hooker and Brown. Mount Coleman is named in his honour.
