Mount Fay is the highest mountain in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, on the border between Alberta and British Columbia. In 1902 it was named after Charles E. Fay, a pioneer mountaineer in the Canadian Rockies. Fay was supposed to have the honour of being the first to summit “his” mountain. But Christian Kaufmann and Gertrude Benham, one of the few women alpinists of the turn of the century, beat him to it and made the first recorded ascent of Mount Fay on 19th July 1904.
