Moir's routes as far as the Dark Cloud range - guessing from the map from there on. 35km on track, remainder routes.

Route described assumes a packraft. Variants if not would be:
- to descend Lumaluma Creek or the range to it's east which would involve finding a steep route out of the head of Oho Creek.
- or to descend Long Burn to Lake Widgeon and crossing south coast ranges - which means lots of potentially large rivers to cross

Mours Huide, Ed7, Pg 170: Long Burn

Wonder if swampy lower river is raftable ...? here's hoping.

Pt803 looks like a viable bypass to upper gorge ...

Looks maybe possible on map. Other option if gorge is impassable is to circle north to Saddle 869 and descend either creek or spur or a combination into the main valley

Looks like a good packraft route with portage between top two lakes. Without raft Lake Pruser looks hard to pass - alternative route via Lumaluma Creek instead of Oho looks better if on foot.

Packraft route across sound, or 7km detour round shore - looks doable from contours

Rouet approx - assuming ridgeline goes. Basins north of 'The Stopper' another safer slower options
