| This peak is #38 on the Height List for British Columbia .Lunette Peak is the name given to a sharp spur on the end of the south ridge of Mount Assiniboine. Although there is not much of a drop between it and the main peak, the drop was sufficient to confuse Outram in a thick mist in September 1901, and caused him to think he had reached the main peak of Assiniboine.
Ever since then, despite the fact it really only rises 38 meters above the col with Assiniboine, it has been included in the list of major peaks in the Rockies.|
The ascent of Lunette is pleasant, even demanding, and affords fine views of the surrounding area, as well as of its big brother to the north. Perhaps the over-riding caution in regard to this climb is, however, to engage this peak when it is dry.
Name Notes: Named Lunette by the Boundary Commission in 1913.
