A minor peak west of Chateau Lake Louise and north of Mt. Victoria.
The summit pyramid puts one into a terrific position to view the peaks above the Plain of Six Glaciers and additional peaks to the north. Mount Whyte may be connected with routes on a number of nearby mountains. One descent route neatly ends at the teahouse above the Plain of the Six Glaciers. There is a scramble route and an Alpine route which is detailed in Sean Dougherty's Selected Alpine Climbs in the Canadian Rockies.
Name Notes: Named in 1898 after Sir William Methuen Whyte, who joined the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1884 and was Vice President in 1910.
