Overlord Mountain from the West-Northwest
Overlord Mountain is the highpoint of the Fitzimmons Range south of Whistler BC. in Garibaldi Provincial Park The west, north, and east flanks are heavily glaciated. The normal approach involves a long spring ski slog from Whistler via the Singing Pass trail or, over the Musical Bumps from the Whistler Mountain ski area. The north ridge is a long sloping ramp, which can be ascended on skis to a glacier bench that runs eastward from the summit. Overlord Mountain provides an interesting obstacle for those following the traditional route of the Spearhead Traverse, but for those looking for an interesting day or weekend objective, it can be easily ascended via the Benvolio Glacier. The summit provides excellent views in a full circumference.

Route Summaries exist for this mountain, but are only available to paid members.
