Stutfield Peak from the West
This peak is #18 on the Height List for Alberta .Although named in 1899, it was not actually climbed until 1927.

Note that officially there is only one Stutfield Peak. However there is another unnamed peak to the northeast, which is referred to as the "East" peak of Stutfield. (more properly it should be the Northeast peak. Bivouac refers to it as Stutfield NE2. And thus the highest peak is referred to as Stutfield - West Peak by Corbett.

Do not confuse Stuffield NE2 with the snow mound which is about 1 km north and a bit west. On the metric map, this N peak has the same contour, but on the old more accurate imperial map, it is 100 feet lower. So far, nobody is calling the snow mound an undiscovered 11,000 peak, but the day will come.

Name Notes: The peak was named after Hugh Stutfield, who climbed and explored with Norman Collie at the turn of the 20th century. Collie and Stutfield were the authors of the classic book "Climbs and Explorations in the Canadian Rockies". Collie named the peak in 1899 after Stutfield.
