Mt. Girouard. 1938 first ascent by E. E. Bishop, D. R. Crosby. From summit of Mt. Inglismaldie descent was made to the Inglis- maldie-Girouard col and the narrow ridge followed to the summit of Mt. Girouard, traversing where necessary on the steep face overlooking Lake Minnewanka. Col to summit, 2 h.

Second ascent and traverse. In 1940, Miss J. Atkin, A. Bierwagen, D. R. Crosby, P. Lagerstrom. From Lake Minnewanka at end of N. ridge of peak marked 9270 ft. on Banff Park map between Mt. Girouard and Mt. Peechee. One should go down the lake until opposite the warden’s cabin (on the map mentioned it is shown about 2 miles further down the lake than its actual location). The 9270-ft. peak was ascended by its N. ridge, the steeper pitches being avoidable by skirting to the left. Mt. Girouard is easily reached thence, any difficulties being avoidable by traversing on the S. face. Descent by S. W. gully between Girouard and Inglismaldie to Banff-Calgary road.
