Rearguard Mountain and Titkana Peak
1.5 km NW of Snowbird Pass, on the Continental Divide. Titkana and the 2781 m subpeak are both on what is officially named Tatei Ridge. A lower spur running NW off the NE flank of the 2674 m subpeak is named Chetang Ridge.

Name Notes: Lucius Coleman named the peak, Ptarmigan Peak, but Adolphus Moberly, guide to the Coleman's 1908 Robson expedition, suggested the Stoney word. Ptarmigan still abound in the Snowbird Meadows. (The peak now known as Ptarmigan Peak - near Lake Louise - was officially named such in 1909.)
