Tremont Mountain Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Teetering blocks of the "Bear", buttress...
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.

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.
