Route up Mount Bourgeau
Located SSE of Mount Brett and W of Healy Creek above the Bow Valley. The main summit block is composed of massive horizontal strata which looks like it was pushed straight upwards. Because of its location above the point where the Bow Valley turns to the northeast it usually gets large accumulations of snow and typically retains it into the summer months. It is marked with a spot height of 2931 m.

Name Notes: It was named in 1860 by James Hector after Eugene Bourgeau who was a botanist in the Palliser Expedition.
