Armchair Glacier
Located in northwestern Garibaldi Provincial Park, on the east side of the Armchair Glacier. It's the second highest peak in Garibaldi Park with 3 summits of similar height connected by a long, sharp ridge. The pyramidal south summit is the highest of the three. The rock around the flanks is quite blocky and fractured. The north side of the peak boasts a steep ice face.

  North Summit: 2780 50:10:16-122:47:22
  Central 2822 50:10:09-122:47:12
  South 2835 50:09:59-122:47:13

  West Owl 2710
  East Owl 2720

Name Notes: Named by the Garibaldi Park Administrative Board after their chairman J.W. Weart, appointed 1927; former member of the Provincial Legislature and Speaker of the House at Victoria. It's pronounced with a short "e", as in "we". The label on the BC Basemap is in the wrong place: it is on the central summit, but the highest is the south summit.
