  • 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 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 east: Golden Gate Canyon Rd. from CO-93 in Golden. Travel ~14 miles directly into the park (Gilpin County).

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

    West Face Buttress 1 5.3 3+ 10 III 9 VD 3a PG13  Colorado : Golden : ... : Tremont Mountain
    The west face of the northern-most buttress (Buttress #1) on Tremont Mountain is a fun and quick climb that can be ascended via many routes from class 4 to 5.hard, depending on how you want to go. The route described here is one I did, and I felt the climbing was low 5th class.The route ascends weaknesses (cracks) and sloping ledges above great exposure. I soloed the route w/o rope so I cannot comment on how the route would accept pro, but it looked like there are many places to place gear...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
