A long peak situated at the east end of the Gilmour Neve about 3 km north of Mount Lester Pearson. The Gilmore Neve and Gilmour Glacier drain to the north, into Tete Creek. The Continental Divide runs through the Gilmore Neve slightly to the west of the peak, thus a climb from the north involves crossing the Neve. West of the divide the drainage is into Tete Creek, but the mountain itself drains into McLennan Creek. The shortest route is up from Tete Creek, up the Gilmour Glacier and Neve, and then up the northwestern slopes to gain the ridge about 150 m from the top. In summer this can be icy and require step cutting. From there the route is on rock. References: CAJ 33:55

The mountain was named for Prime Minister Arthur Meighen, Conservative prime minister of Canada from 1920-1921 and again in 1926. He was originally from Portage la Prairie, Manitoba.
