Stanley Peak is an attractive snow-covered peak in the Ball Range of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It is located in the northeastern section of Kootenay National Park south of Vermillion Pass. This mountain offers several outstanding alpine grade III routes.
Stanley Peak was named in 1901 by Edward Whymper after Frederick Stanley, the sixth governor-general of Canada, and better known as the Stanley in professional hockey's "Stanley Cup."
