Named by: Arthur Coleman
Named for: Coleman referred to this as, "a striking point of rocks on the north flank of Mount Robson.""
Arthur Wheeler described the feature when he, looked at the north-east face of the Mount Robson from the resemblance to the old Roman headpiece when seen from the valley below." With an elevation of 3420 metres, The Helmet would be a remarkable, outstanding peak were it anywhere else but directly adjacent to Mount Robson that towers 534 metres above it. Please note that there is a peak named Helmet Mountain in Kootenay National Park.
