Crow's Nest Pass
Discovered in the latter sixties by a trapper,
Michael Phillips, formerly in the employ of the Hudson's Bay Company.
The pass took its name from Crow's Nest Mountain, which is named Loge
des Corbeaux on one of the maps accompanying Palliser's Report, 1859.
The original Cree name, of which these are translations, is
Kah-ka-ioo-wut-tshis-tun. =Bib.=: Dawson, Crow's Nest Pass (Geol.
Survey, 1885); McTavish, The Climb of Crow's Nest Mountain in
Canadian Alpine Journal, 1907.
