Crowsnest Mountain, 2,785m (9,137 ft), is located in southwestern Alberta close to the Crowsnest Pass, the lowest pass through the Canadian Rockies. It was given its name by the local Cree natives due to the large number of ravens that nested there.
The Crowsnest mountain was first climbed by Tom Wilson on July 28, 1904, accompanied by two Swiss guides, Christian Hasler, Jr. and Frederich Michel. The trail to the top of the mountain is considered a moderate scramble, although Trailpeak.com lists it as moderate-difficult.
