Mount Trorey South Aspect
Mount Trorey is located in the middle of the Spearhead Range southeast of Whistler, BC. It's on the north side of Fitzsimmons Creek and on the southwest side of the Trorey Glacier. It's a pyramidal peak with a steep north face that provides an excellent descent in good conditions, and intimidates tourers on the Spearhead Traverse when conditions are less than perfect. Mount Trorey is a short ski tour from the Spearhead/Blackcomb Col.


1. SE Ridge NTD. Can be climbed on skis in winter. A walk-up in summer.
2. West Ridge NTD. Face can be climbed during stable conditions on skis from the west. In summer, this is a talus slope split by an obvious couloir. Popular with the local goat population.
