Mount Waldron is a 3100  m high mountain in the west Antarctic Ellsworthland . It is 5 km north of Mount Tuck in the Sentinel Range of the Ellsworth Mountains, the highest peak of the Veregava Ridge between the Dater and Hansen glaciers .

The mountain was discovered during an overflight for the purpose of creating aerial photographs by the flight squadron VX-6 of the United States Navy between December 14 and 15, 1959. These aerial photographs were used by the United States Geological Survey for mapping. The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names named the mountain in 1961 after Kenneth L. Waldron (* 1935), electrician of the first winter team at the South Pole Station in 1957.
