Located on the continental divide at the head of Healy Creek and the head of East Verdant Creek; southern buttress of Healy Pass; eastern buttress of Redearth Pass
This long cliffband begins at Eohippus Lake where it is connected to The Monarch and extends north-northwest some 3.5 kilometres until it descends to Healy Pass and Redearth Pass. The placing of the interprovincial border through the lake-filled meadows to the west-northwest of Monarch Ramparts must have challenged Richard Cautley and his fellow surveyors. The border winds its way through these meadows prior to climbing up the cliffs to a monument placed on fairly long, level part of Monarch Ramparts that must be the highest point. It then proceeds to the north-northwest end of the ridge. Monarch Mountain is located in Jasper National Park.
