Monarch West Face
This peak is #20 on the Height List for British Columbia . This peak is #3 in Prominence List for British Columbia .Monarch Mountain is located on the southern boundary of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. It's the highest peak in a rugged massif that is bounded to the west by huge glaciers. The mountain is infrequently climbed due to its remote location, bad weather, and technical difficulty. The original East Ridge route and the 1953 West Face route are repeated from time to time (and the West Face has been skied - 2003), but the long South Ridge and pinnacle-studded North Ridge are unrepeated.
