This peak, like Ha Ling Peak, is an eye-catching outlier to Mount Lawrence Grassi. The "Ship's Prow" is heading directly east and is very noticeable from the Trans-Canada Highway west of Dead Man Flat.

It's my sister Maralee's favourite mountain.

The prominent ridge that forms the prow was first climbed by Chic Scott and L. McKay in 1965.

This mountain should not be confused with the officially named Prow Mountain in the Red Deer Valley.
