Brussels Peak is located in Jasper National Park two kilometers southwest of Mount Christie, and west of the Athabasca River Valley. The sharp summit tower is a technical alpine climb with a 5.7 route on the Northeast Ridge and a 5.10 route on the North Face. Brussels Peak is named for the S.S. Brussels which was a British merchant steamer captured by the Germans in June of 1916 while transporting food and refugees from Belgium after leaving Holland. The captain of the Brussels, Charles Algernon Fryatt, who was later executed by the Germans, has a peak named in his honor northwest of Brussels Peak across the Fryatt Creek valley.
