Back Down into the Basin
Looking down from the black sill area to the first section of the route from the Highline Trail, which is visible below. At the right end of the trail as shown here, it crosses the dangerous snowbank mentioned on the route page.

The ridgeline shows a good portion of the South Iceberg Peak route; the pointed peak on the left is South Iceberg. The goat trail on the west side of the ridgeline is visible.

Glacier National Park, MT-- July 2008

It's funny-- in posting this picture and doing the caption, I focused so much on its pertinence to route information that I paid little attention to the background beyond the obviousness of Heavens Peak! I'll have to go back and add some peak ID's.

Yes you need to get it together! LOL! I do the same thing. I am planning on doing Ahern and Iceberg this summer. It looks like typical Glacier climbing to me. That goat trail from Swiftcurrent looks sweet! I may take that one on the way to Granite Park.

It has been snowing here in the valley so I imagine Glacier is getting dumped on. So far almost an inch of moisture in the last 24 hours and it is going to rain for the next week or so. This will help hold the fires off.
