Tremor Mountain from the Southwest
Tremor Mountain is located near the east end of the Spearhead Range southeast of Whistler, BC. There are three separate glaciers around the summit, and it's the highest mountain encountered along the traditional route of the Spearhead Traverse. The east ridge is the standard summit route. The summit provides excellent views in all directions and is a quick nip up for a fit touring party. There are steep descents to be had directly from the peak, with the north face often holding a good quality snowpack.

1. N Face 45-50 degree snow/ice. From head of Tremor Glacier, cross obvious bergshrund and crevasses to ascend face. Best when alpine temperatures have frozen the snow into a solid mass. Not normally corniced, as it is used as a heli-ski run in winter.
2. E Ridge NTD, loose rock and talus. From north head of Platform Glacier, gain the westernmost col and ascend Tremor via E Ridge.
3. W Ridge 4th to 5th class rock. An option which may not yet have seen an ascent, the W Rige of Tremor includes a buttress of good granite with reasonable crack lines. Alternately, the buttress can be bypassed by scrambling up steep broken rock.
4. W Face (1995) D Sarkany, O David. 4th and 5th class. The northernmost gully of the W Face presents a couple of pitches of mixed climbing.
