Staking Claim on Howson

It was Dick Culbert’s idea. The Government Prospector’s Grubstakes provided funds for Dick, Glenn Woodsworth, Ashlyn Armour-Brown, and Arnold Shives to explore remote areas of the Coast Mountains and conduct research for Dick’s climber’s guide in 1962. From Burnie Lake, the Beaver float plane dropped them off to backpack into the Howson Range. Escapades included a climbing fall and a near miss with an avalanche. And on a ridge beside an icefall they even staked a claim. Artwork details
