Chimai Mountain East Ridge
Located at the southern edge of the icefield north of Falk Creek. 2 km N of Falk Creek, and 5 km west of Ashlu Creek. This peak has a long gentle glacier on its north face, which is the normal route to climb the peak. Its southern face is at first gentle, but then drops abruptly over a cliff into Falk Creek. This peak is the highest point on the icefield, and of the alpine area extending westward toward the Vancouver River.

Name Notes: Not sure what the provenance of the name is; however, there appears to be a Chi-Mai mountain in China. Also, Chi Mai is a soundtrack from a 1981 movie, "Le Professionel".

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
