Serov Peak from NW
A nice granite horn west of Tzoonie Lake and 2km SE of the head of Falk Lake. Possibly only two ascents to date. Note that the position of this map is slightly different than basemap on the old 1:50,000 maps. The 1:50,000 shows it as having trees up the west slopes, but open slopes facing east.

Name Notes: Named according to the Russian Painters theme of the area. Valentin Alexandrovich Serov (1865 - 1911) was a Russian painter. The greatest works of Serov's early period were portraits ("The Girl with peaches" (1887), "The Girl covered by the sun" (1888); both in Tretyakov gallery). In these paintings Serov concentrated on spontaneity of perception of model and the nature. In development of light and color, in transfer of complex harmony of reflections, in the saturation of the environment by air, in freshness of picturesque perception of the world there appeared the features of early Russian impressionism.
