Mount Lyell is a mountain on the Alberta-British Columbia border, in western Canada. It is located on the Great Divide, which forms the BC-Alberta boundary in this area, in Banff National Park. The mountain is the highest in the Lyell Group, a subrange of the Central Icefields in the Canadian Rockies.
The peak has a height of 3,504 m (11,496 ft). In 1972, five distinct peaks on Mt. Lyell were named for Swiss mountain guides. On the interprovincial boundary are Christian Peak, Ernest Peak, and Walter Peak named for Ernest [sic] Feuz, Walter Feuz and Christian Hässler. Located entirely in Alberta are Edward Peak and Rudolph Peak named for Edward [sic] Feuz and Rudolph Aemmer.
It marks the limit between the South Saskatchewan and Columbia watersheds.
The mountain was named by James Hector in 1858 for the Scottish geologist Sir Charles Lyell.
There's a trail called Mount Lyell Route leading to the summit.
