Mount Alderson (8,832 feet, 2,692 m) is a barren, wind swept peak in Waterton Lakes National Park. The peak can be reached via a pretty straightforward off trail ridgeline route originating from the Carthew-Alderson Trail and more specifically the Carthew Lakes area. There is a well worn use trail to the peak, however, some class three scrambling may be necessary to negotiate some cliff bands along the distinct ridgeline.
This hike is listed as One-Way.
