Mount Sarbach from the East
The northern outlier of the Waputik Mountains, Mt. Sarbach sits in the angle between the Mistaya River and the Howse River. Peter Sarbach was the first Swiss Guide to work in Canada. He guided Collie and Baker to the summit after he had led Collie and others to the summits of Mt. Victoria and Mt. Lefroy earlier in the summer of 1897. Collie named the peak for him.
