Thanks to Kevin Altheim for adding this peak.

Mount Bell is located east of Consolation Pass and directly south of Panorama Ridge on the west side of the Trans Canada Highway. It is the highest point on the entire ridge that separates the Bow Valley from Boom Lake and Consolation Lakes valleys.

There is a moderate scramble route on the southwest slopes which can be approached from Taylor Lake using the Taylor Lake Trail from the Trans Canada Highway, or from Boom Lake using the Boom Lake Trail. Both approaches converge at the col between Bell and the smaller peak to the east, then the southwest slopes are followed to the summit.

It was named after Nora Bell in 1910. Nora Bell was an ACC member and part of the first ascent of the peak during the clubs annual camp which was held at Consolation Lakes. It is also sometimes referred to as Mount Bellevue.
