Gladsheim from Gimli Area
This peak is #25 in Prominence List for British Columbia .Gladsheim is the highest peak in the Valhalla Range. It is located on a long ridge running east between Gwillim Creek and Mulvey Creek. It is just north of the head of Mulvey Creek. It is an impressive castellated rock summit. Excellent rock with lots of south facing exposure for sunny summer days. The overhanging Trireme Wall forms the west ridge of Gladsheim, while the West and East Molars, West and East Humps, and Wedge are all massive rock towers and subsidiary peaks found on the long east ridge of Gladsheim (all names but Gladsheim are unofficial).

Location Notes: Note that when you plot its BC Basemap position onto a 1:50 map, the peak falls slightly north of the highest contour. The BC Basemap location is: 49:47:12-117:37:38, but the 1:50K position would be 49° 47' 10" -117° 37' 37".

Name Notes: Gladsheim in Norse myth was Odin's feast hall, where the highest gods met in council.
