Mount Harrison North Face
This peak is #65 on the Height List for British Columbia . This peak is #45 in Prominence List for British Columbia .Mount Harrison was the last of the 11000-ft mountains to be climbed in the Canadian Rockies. The reason for the late ascent wasn't difficulty but ignorance among mountaineers about the height of this peak. The south face is an easy scramble.

Name Notes: Adopted in 1964, after RCAF Pilot Office Francis Arthur Harrison, DFC, from Cranbrook.
