Mount Hosmer is the more southerly of two 2500m peaks just northwest of the town of Hosmer (in between Sparwood and Fernie); the two summits are about 1.1km apart. The northern peak of the pair may be a bit higher but has been charted here as a subpeak of the southern one, which is the gazetted summit, with the same height showing even though it may be 5-10m more. The southern subpeak appears to have a major bluff or cliff of about 450m, facing west and southwest over the valley of Hartley Creek.
