  • Description 

    Tremont Mountain is more of a ridge than a peak. From the true summit, a gnarly ridge runs south providing many rock climbing/ridge-running opporutinites. Although the approach is a trailless bushwhack, the views and options for climbing are plentiful. These routes receive no sun, only shade in mornings since most of the routes exist on west-facing rock. It is easy to see incoming weather though! Very few if any people ever travel here...no trails. The rock is granite and of good quality = solid.

    Eds. the park rangers are considering determining a single access route to reduce the impacts of multiple social trails to this area. Please be on the lookout for new signage to help preserve our access. Thank you.

    Getting There

    From the North/South: Travel on CO-119 to CO-46. Turn east and go ~3 miles directly into park.

    While maybe not technically on Tremont Mountain, this climb is on the very end of a long knobby continuous ridge that leaves the summit and trends south for a couple miles. At the end of this ridge above CO-46 are two tall rock walls called Ralston Roost and Son of Ralston. These formations are covered somewhat in the Falcon Guide #23 Lyons Area guidebook.Climb vert cracks through broken ledges low on the route and pass a couple bushes. Then, get into the sweet leftwar...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
