Lucifer Peak is a 2,726-metre (8,944-foot) mountain summit located in the Valhalla Ranges of the Selkirk Mountains in southeast British Columbia, Canada. It is situated in western Valhalla Provincial Park, 8.8 km (5.5 mi) west-northwest of Gladsheim Peak, 18 km (11 mi) west of Slocan Lake, and 20 km (12 mi) west-northwest of Slocan. This peak's name was officially adopted July 26, 1977, by the Geographical Names Board of Canada. The peak is located in Devils Range, which is a subrange of the Valhallas. The names of the peaks of this small compact range have a devil-related theme: Black Prince Mountain, Mount Mephistopheles, Devils Dome, Mount Diablo, Satan Peak, Devils Spire, and Devils Couch. Based on the Köppen climate classification, Lucifer Peak has a subarctic climate with cold, snowy winters, and mild summers. Temperatures can drop below −20 °C with wind chill factors below −30 °C. Precipitation runoff from the mountain drains into Gwillim Creek and Evans Creek, both tributaries of the Slocan River. The first ascent of the peak was made August 24, 1970, by Bob Dean and Howie Ridge via the east ridge.
