Mount Lister is a massive mountain, 4,025 metres (13,200 ft) high, forming the highest point in the Royal Society Range of Victoria Land, Antarctica. It was discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition (1901–04) which named it for Lord Joseph Lister, President of the Royal Society, 1895–1900.
Waikato Spur, a rock spur about 3 nmi (5.6 km) long, extends northwestward from Mount Lister. The spur separates the upper part of Emmanuel Glacier from the Carleton Glacier. The spur was named by the US Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN) in 1994 after the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand, in association with nearby features that are named after colleges and universities.
