| This peak is #16 on the Height List for Alberta . This peak is #12 in Prominence List for Alberta .The classic and recently reprinted Rockies book "The Canadian Rockies, New and Old Trails" by Arthur Coleman tells the story of his attempt in 1902 to climb the mountain. His description sounds very much like the route from Swan Pass: "From our beautiful camp ground we had a broad view of the mountain and icefield four miles to the north-west, and arranged for an attack upon it next day." Upon reaching the soft snow on the Glacier the travelling became difficult. Higher up the footing was better but crevasses and avalanches posed problems. "Halting on some projecting rocks at 10,550 feet, we held a council of war and decided that further climbing was too dangerous to risk. From clinometer readings made at our earlier halts the top of Brazeau Mountain, as we named it, is about five hundred feet above our stopping-point."|
Name Notes: The peak was named by Coleman in 1902 after the Brazeau River. The Brazeau River was named by Hector after Joseph E. Brazeau, a Hudson's Bay Company employee who was a translator on the Palliser Expedition.
