Nine Peaks from Near Mount Septimus
Located just south of Strathcona Park, on Vancouver Island. "Nine Peak" is the Bivouac name for the highest point of a group of peaks officially called Nine Peaks. Nine Peak has a glacier on the NE slopes.

Name Notes: In general, the Encyclopedia policy is to avoid plural names for a single point. In this case, the simplest thing is to just call the highest point "Nine Peak" rather than trying to invent another name. In this case the peaks are so indistinct that it's probably not a problem.
