Squaw's Tit is a mountain in the Canadian Rockies of Alberta.

Squaw's Tit is an unofficial name of the high point of a ridge that lies west of Mount Charles Stewart and Mount Lady Macdonald near Canmore. The peak owes its name to the resemblance it shares with a woman's upturned breast. Due to its politically incorrect name, it is unlikely to receive official status but is in common use.


The scrambling route is graded moderate but includes exposure and thus is strongly recommended that the ascent only be done in dry conditions.
