Named for: The mountain is the dominant one in the area of Simpson Pass. It is not particularly high but is most impressive partly because it rises on all sides from fairly low elevations.
In the report of the Interprovincial Boundary Survey by Arthur Wheeler and Richard Cautley the mountain is referred to in the discussion of Simpson Pass as follows: "Southwestward the dominating feature of the pass is the fine piece of mountain architecture known as Monarch Mountain."
Monarch Mountain is located in Jasper National Park.
Monarch Ramparts is a long cliffband connected to "The Monarch."
