Mount Keith is a mountain on the crest of California's Sierra Nevada, between Mount Bradley to the north, and Junction Peak to the southwest. Its north and west facing slopes feed the Kings River watershed by way of Bubbs Creek, and its east and south slopes feed the Owens River via Shepherd Creek. By the same dividing line, Keith stands on the boundary of Kings Canyon National Park to the northwest, and the John Muir Wilderness to the southeast. It is a thirteener, a mountain which has a height over 13,000 feet (3,962 m).
The first ascending party consisted of Cornelius Beach Bradley, Jennie and Robert Price, and Joseph Shinn. Scrambling over boulders and scree from the upper lakes of Center Basin, they made the summit by the Northwest Face route on July 6, 1898.
