Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2010


With Dave Prather~
Hiked from the trailhead past Twin Lakes. Paintbrush, heather and dogtooth violets were blooming in the Scenic Lakes Basin. Beauitful smooth rock, snow pockets, and incredible views of the Missions and the Rattlesnake Wilderness from the ridge.

MTfred19NE ridge from Scenic Lakes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2010


Called in sick and took off up the hill to Riddell Lakes and then on to Scenic Lakes. I actually left my dogs at home this time which is very rare, but necessary once arriving at the notch on the northeast ridge. I found there to be just one or two fairly easy climbing moves getting out of the notch and then easy scrambling to the top. Another excellent Mission Mountains summit!

Vernon (saintgrizzly) invited me and Meleah (mhimber), another local SPer, along while he and Tim (T Sharp) did a recon of the NE Ridge Route for their lead of a rather large group the following weekend.

The weather was perfect when we began, but soon looked threatening and continued that way all day. Fortunately for us bad weather never materialized allowing us to complete the route.

I especially enjoyed working the easy cliff-bands and rock up the nice long ridge, followed by the "real fun" on both sides of the notch, which was truly a blast. I agree, this is one mountain that climbers should visit if given the chance.

NoSubasOne of my favorites!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2003


First time I climbed was by the south couloir. Steep snow to the false summit, hairy descent. I've since climbed the south again, the east couloir, and the one I am most proud of from the No Fish Lake side, the West Couloir in May 2004 with Seth Q. This was excellent snow/ice climbing for 2000 feet! Probably my favorite peak of all I have climbed. I have descended the NE ridge, the south couloir, and the east couloir.

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2004


This route was a fun 4 th class scrample, Im not sure if it is the same route everyone here is talking about, we came from E St Mary peak to the base of the couliour by no fish lake? I think that is the name of the lake, anyways. This side looks like an awesome winter climb.

Also my B-day climb! We took the NE ridge - there were a couple of sketchy moves and airy ledges...

Fred SpickerEast Ridge / Upper North Face

Fred Spicker

Climbed August 26, 1968 with Bill Bishop. This was the first recorded ascent of the peak for two years. I understand that the mountain gets more attention now.

From near the notch at the base of the NE Ridge, we traversed on to the North Face and climbed its upper part to the summit.

SaintgrizzlyThis mountain rocks...!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2006


Climbed the NE Ridge, which is approached via the Scenic Lakes Basin, and this mountain immediately goes to the top of my "favorite climbs" list! I did it (a day late, but it doesn't matter) to celebrate my 60th (AAAARGH!) birthday, and it couldn't have been better. Great climbing partner in fellow SPer Tim Sharp (Thanks, Tim!), weather made to order, ripe huckleberries coming and going (now THAT is trail time well spent!), and...me-oh-my, oh what a mountain! Gray Wolf, to me, is one of the great ones.

A really fun climb with saintgrizzly. Beautiful cloudless day, and not too hot! Wonderful peak with two interesting steps up out of a very steep notch.
