This peak is #75 in Prominence List for British Columbia .This peak is found south of Kippan Creek at the head of Corsan Creek. It is a ridge with several summits and a small pocket glacier on the windward (SW) side. Rock in the area is a mix of orthogneiss and granodiorite. The entire ridge system running from Benedict to Peak 5610 (Clear) would make an enjoyable traverse with some unavoidable technical climbing.

Name Notes: Named after Corsan Creek.
