North Bastion Mountain is a 2,696 metres (8,845 ft) peak in British Columbia, Canada. Its line parent is The White Tower, 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) away. It is part of the Tower of London Range of the Muskwa Ranges in the Canadian Rockies.

South Bastion Mountain is named after the South Bastion of the Tower of London. Other mountains in the area are also named after the Tower, including The White Tower, South Bastion Mountain and Tower Mountain, which overlooks the south end of Wokkpash Lake. These names were given by the Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment) Canadian Rocky Mountains Expedition 1960, a small expedition with members from a regiment based in the Tower of London.
