This peak is #58 on the Height List for British Columbia . This peak is #26 in Prominence List for British Columbia .Mount Dawson is located near the northwest end of the Deville Neve, south of Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park. Hasler Peak (Mount Dawson) is the second highest peak in the Selkirk Mountains. (The highest is Sir Sandford).

Name Notes: On the topo maps, Mount Dawson is actually spread across two peaks: Hasler Peak and Feuz Peak. Jones guidebook says Mount Dawson consists of three peaks: Michel Peak, Feuz Peak, and Hasler Peak. In any event, our policy is to use the historical name as the primary title of the highest point. Therefore Mount Dawson/Hasler Peak.

Hasler and Feuz Peaks were named by Professor Fay after two of his guides: Edouard Feuz Sr. and Christian Hasler Sr. after his ascent in 1899. Feuz Peak is on the west side of the massif and Hasler Peak on the east. Hasler is the highest. Adopted in 1901, after geologist George Mercer Dawson.

1. From Glacier Circle Hut The normal route up Mount Dawson is from Glacier Circle hut. The route is up the lower ridge of Mount Fox until the Fox Glacier snowfield is reached, then up the bare shale ridge between the Fox and Dawson Glaciers. This leads to the summit ridge between Mt. Selwyn and Hasler Peak.
