Mount Lawson and Mount Inflexible
Mount Lawson is located west of the Kananaskis River, east of the headwaters of Kent Creek, and southeast of Mount Inflexible. It is a high point on a long ridge which extends southeast almost all of the way to the Lower Kananaskis Lake. It can be scrambled via the east slopes to the ridge top. Once at the ridge top a short walk southeast gains the summit.

Name Notes: It was named in 1922 by Walter D. Wilcox and H.G. Bryant after Major W.E. Lawson, an employee with the Geological Survey of Canada who was killed in France during World War I.
