Mount Fryatt and the Athabasca River at sunrise, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada, 2013
Mount Fryatt was named in 1921 in order to honour the captain of the Brussels and the railway ferry itself had a mountain to the south of Mount Fryatt (Brussels Peak) named in its honour.
The first ascent in 1926 required a determined effort by J.W.A. Hickson and Howard Palmer led by guide Hans Fuhrer. They were forced to bivouac following a thunderstorm on the summit, returning to their camp 28 hours after setting out.
