Sir Alexander North/ Northwest Face
This peak is #48 in Prominence List for British Columbia .At 10700 feet, Mt Sir Alexander is truly an impressive peak. The surrounding massif encompasses a sizable range of peaks but Alex proper dominates. The lower half of the peak forms steep bastion like walls which lead up to a huge hanging glacier. Rising from the top of these walls and up from the glacier rises the looming summit of Alex. Exposure to falling debris is severe on most all routes.

Name Notes: Mount Kitchi adopted in 1915, later changed to Mount Alexander Mackenzie in 1916, then changed again to Mount Sir Alexander im 1917, after Alexander Mackenzie.
