The group of four men comprised of George Bury, George Eisenschimmel, Howard Hamil (all from the Holyburn Ski Club on the North Shore) and a guide, whose name has been forgotten. They explored around Cheakamus Lake, Black Tusk, Garibaldi Lake, and the Barrier. The group were dropped off by float plane on Cheakamus Lake and exited down the Barrier.
