WOLFrisingRough Day on a Steep Trail  Sucess!


Summer 2012

Elk may have been my roughest day on a mountain in Glacier. Climbed with Jose y Borja on a particularly HOT day in the park. The trail was steep, and the stream crossings were depleted to gurgling brooks. We bathed in a small snow patch found near the top. A total surprise after a pleasant, beautiful day on the Mt. Henry 4 mountain ridgewalk!

Date Climbed: Apr 8, 2012


Took advantage of a beautiful blue sky day and am pretty sure I had the whole southern end of the park all to myself. Couldn't think of a better church to spend Easter in than Glacier.

Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2011
I have read that Mt Brown LO is the steepest trail in the park, but I think Elk Mtn might actually be steeper. Great views from the top -- picked out Loneman and Scalplock LOs, Henry, Flinsch, Great Northern, Pinchot. Wind not as bad at the summit as it was on the way up!

2010 July 24 Went solo for the first time. Awesome day.
2011 March 18. James & I tried it, but it became a blizzard and turned around about 2/3 of the way up.
2011 3-27 Had a beautiful day with Dell, Martin, Laurel, & Aleysha. Had some awesome butt glissading on the way down.

distressbarksteep trail!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 15, 2010


Very, very steep trail to the top. Interesting views from the top, including a great perspective on the Ole Creek drainage and mighty Mount St. Nicholas. Watched a wicked storm brewing over Two Medicine north of Firebrand Pass, but my hour on the summit was generally quite sunny and warm. Loved getting to see a different area of the park from up top.

With Eli Behrhorst on December 10, 2011. The previous day, I set out to hike to Firebrand Pass and climb Red Crow or Calf Robe, but fierce winds cut, biting cold and post holing cut my day short. Still windy and chilly the next day when we hiked up Elk, but conditions were much more bearable! Found a nice spot a few feet below the summit, behind a wall of crusty snow to escape the winds up top!

Went with a group of 24 GMSers. Was a wonderful climb until the last 600 feet when the top disappeared in to the clouds. Biting cold, 30mph winds, 20ft visibility. But all had a good time.

Summitted in 50 mph gusts of wind with blowing snow and clear skies. The snow had obliterated the trail above the false summit so went straight up.
