W. A. D. Munday’s map Cariboos 1925 [as Gunboat Ridge]
In July 1925, Walter Alfred Don Munday [1890–1950] and Phyllis Munday [1894–1990] made an expedition into the Cariboo Range.
Two parties of climbers had preceded them: Edward Willet Dorland Holway [1853–1923] andAndrew James Gilmour [1871–1941] in 1916;and Allen Carpé [1894–1932] and Rollin Thomas Chamberlin [1881–1948] in 1924.
The latter party made two major climbs, the first ascents of Mt. Titan (11,850 ft.) and Mt. Challenger (10,900 ft.). They also climbed three minor mountains: Gunboat (10,000 ft.); a shoulder of Mt. Titan which they called Bivouac Peak (10,150 ft.) and a triple summit (10,250 ft.), which Mr. Munday refers to as Holway’s Peak, he having made the first ascent of its northerly summit. (The elevation and other names are Mr. Carpé’s.)— Munday
