Personally, I would not risk being repulsed by such high cliffs, especially after what must be a horrendous thrash up the valley. There must be an easier route up either the W side of Swede Saw (the mountain in the centre of the photo), or up the forest N of the Swede Saw - Belinda group of peaks. Once in the Belinda cirque, follow a level traverse from above the E side of Belinda Lake to above Raccoon Pass. Getting down into the pass is not obvious from above, it's tricky scrambling. Consult your topo map. Also, a forest cover map.

Sorry, that link doesn't work, just go to my photos and find the one with the helicopter and then start forward from there.

Beautifully captured nature; great composition, Antonina.

I just had a look at my map and I'm inclined to say no. We stood on the edge of the pass looking down into that hole and there are a lot of cliffs, bluffs and steep bush. The only guy I know that travelled from the Toba river into the alpine (and vice versa) has been dead a few years (John Clarke)but he wrote extensively in the B.C. Mountaineering Club and Alpine Club of Canada journals about his numerous trips through that area so if you can get a hold of those you might find something out. We got helicoptered in onto the Wave glacier and hiked down into the pass/park and then walked out to the Elaho River. I'll put your question to one other friend who might have an idea and get back to you.

Very beautiful landscape: YSL
Kind regards, René

Welcome to Panoramio Dwayne, I'm surprised it took you this long to get here, nice that those pesky glaciers are melting so we can have better lake views, eh?

No, standing outside.
