Thanks to Kevin Altheim for adding this peak.

Mount Girouard is located between Mount Inglismaldie and Mount Peechee in the Fairholme Range which is on the east side of the Bow Valley and Canmore. It has a difficult scramble on the northwest ridge but the entire Fairholme Range is off limits to public access due the prescribed burning to combat the massive Mountain Pine Beetle infestation, and to protect a valuable wildlife corridor.

It was named after Colonel Sir Eduard Percy Girouard in 1904. Girouard built railways in north and south Africa during colonial times as the British Empire grew. He later went on to become a colonial administrator and in 1915 The Director General of Munitions Supply.
