Located due north of the east end of Mountain Lake, and south of Sky Pilot and Ledge peaks. A minor peak which can easily be climbed in an hour or two from the BCMC's Mountain Lake hut.
There is a steep rock wall on the south side which looks as if it has a hard 2 pitch unclimbed off width/chimney climb waiting for someone willing to drag lots of big cams on the long approach to the hut.
Access is by Furry Creek FSR.
Name Notes: Mt. Sheer also gives its name to the abandoned mining ghost town site in upper Brittania Creek. (at 49:37.4-123:08.7 on the map). At one time this site provided permanent housing for many people who worked in the upper shaft. Now all that is left of significance are building foundations and the old playing field. The map also shows a higher clearing of some sort at the head of Jane Creek.
