6 km NNW of Kicking Horse Pass. One of the southern outliers of the Waputik Mountains, Waputik Peak forms part of the eastern wall of the Bath Creek valley, separating it from the Bow Valley.
In a clear case of toponomic overkill, the peak gave its name to the "range" in which it is situated – the escarpment-like western wall of the Bow Valley, south of Hector Lake – and also to the grander sweep of the Waputik Mountains, which stretch from Kicking Horse Pass to the North Saskatchewan River.
Name Notes: The first ascent is uncredited in "The Rocky Mountains of Canada South," but photographic evidence in "Alpina Americana," published by the AAC in 1911, indicates that the ascent was made by the Dominion Topographic Survey prior to that date - the best bet would be J.J. McArthur in 1887. The peak was named by G.M. Dawson in 1884, for the Stoney word for mountain goat.
