This peak is #52 on the Height List for British Columbia .Located west of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, at the south end of the west wall of Kiwa Glacier, with its western slopes draining into Black Martin Creek and its eastern slopes into Kiwa Creek.
SW side of Kiwa Glacier, W of Valemount in the Premier Range, Cariboo Land District.
Mount Sir John Abbott formerly Mt Kiwa was first climbed in 1927, 50 years after Confederation. The base camp was near the terminus of the Kiwa Glacier, with an advance camp at 1750 m still in the trees on the east wall of the glacier. The route circles around the peak to get onto the south ridge, in order to avoid an icefall/crevasses flowing north from the peak. The ascent is mostly on the crest of the ridge, going onto the rocky east face in places.
Name Notes: Adopted in 1927, after the Right Honourable Sir John Joseph Caldwell Abbott, Canada's third Prime Minister.
