Perkin's Pillar was a vertical pillar of volcanic rock of the Mount Meager massif in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. It existed on the steep north flank of Capricorn Mountain. The upper half of Perkin's Pillar broke sometime in June 2005 and only a jagged sliver remains of the previously mighty summit.
