Mount Grenville from the southwest
This high summit dominates the southern end of the Homathko Icefield. It is the biggest thing between Bute and Queen Bess and between Gilbert-Raleigh and the Waddington Range, and sticks out prominently like the proverbial sore thumb. Despite the height, it is one of the very few 3000m peaks in the Coast Mountains that one can ski to the summit of.
