Mount Rohr
Mount Rohr is located 2 km north of the Duffey Lake Road, across the highway from the mouth of Cerise Creek. It's an easy peak to ascend with gentle slopes on most sides and many parties have reached the summit on skis. The summit elevation was measured June 30, 2001 with a handheld GPS receiver and found to be 2433 m; the provincial Basemap system says 2423m.

Name Notes: Father Victor Rohr was the Oblate missionary to the Indians in the region between Skookumchuck and Williams Lake in the first half of the Twentieth Century. The peak was named by Father Damasus Payne OSB, who climbed extensively, and died in 1978 on Golden Ears.
