This low outlier of the Fisher Range is quite prominent from the Powderface Trail.

Belmore Browne (1880-1954) climbed and explored extensively, was a founding member of the American Alpine Club, co-established Mount McKinley National Park, and came within 40 metres of making the first ascent of the highest peak in North Americain 1912. But he and his family also spent thirty years wandering over the ridges of the Jumpingpound and Elbow area. They spent their summers in Banff from 1920 until 1943. [Gillean Daffern]
