Other Information

Arthur O. Wheeler wrote of this mountain in the Boundary Survey Report, "In the centre, between these two final branches of the (Athabasca) river, is a mountain mass culminating in an outstanding wege-shaped crest, at the corners of which two points project above the snow like ears; on this account the mass has been named Listening Mountain."
