Mount Saint John, height 11,430 feet (3,480 m), is located in the Teton Range, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, northwest of Jenny Lake.[3] The mountain towers above the northwest shore of Jenny Lake, and along with Symmetry Spire and Rockchuck Peak, form a massif which looms to the north above Cascade Canyon. The scenic Lake of the Crags, a cirque lake or tarn, is located immediately south of the summit and is accessed by way of Hanging Canyon.
