"Squaw's Tit" is an unofficial name for the high point of a ridge that lies southwest of the Mount Charles Stewart summit and northwest of Mount Lady Macdonald near Canmore. The peak owes its name to the resemblance it shares with a woman's upturned breast.

Belonging to the Fairholme Range in Kananaskis Provincial Park, Squaw's Tit is located 1,200 metres (3,900 ft) above the Bow River valley. It is 2 km (1.2 mi) northwest of Lady Macdonald, just east of the Banff National Park gates.

Routes

The scrambling route is graded moderate but includes exposure and thus is strongly recommended that the ascent only be done in dry conditions. Follow the major drainage ditch behind Harvey Heights and stay close along the right (south) side of the ditch. Follow this up to the North West ridge all the way to the slabs just below the protruding summit nipple.
