Mount Tupper is located in the Selkirk Mountains. It is also associated with the Columbia Range and Hermit Range. Tupper is centrally located in Glacier National Park just 4 kilometers northeast of historic Rogers Pass. The impressively steep south face of Tupper towers more than 1500 meters directly above the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy 1), and mountain can be fully seen from Rogers Pass. The large Tupper Glacier resides on the northwest slopes. The popular West Ridge provides good quality rock for climbing to the quartzite summit. The standard approach is made via the Hermit Trail and Hermit Meadows. The mountain was originally named Mt. Hermit, but was renamed for Sir Charles Tupper, the Prime Minister of Canada in 1896.
