My wife and I climbed this on opening day of hunting season lol. Clear blue skies but cold and windy on top. Some steep snow traversing with a couple of sketchy spots but axe and crampons were all we needed for protection. Going to come back later in the winter and maybe ski out the back side to Stanton Lake.

avoided the normal route on the way up because 1/2 feet of unconsolidated snow made the exposed ridge seem risky. ended up traversing the entire west face until directly below the summit. this traverse included one bouldery 4th class move, and one 40 foot pitch of 80 deg. consolidated snow capped by a little cornice. it ended up being really fun! climbed the normal route down...way easier. beautiful inversion above the reservoir for most of the day too

2nd climb of this peak and I'll do it again. Great day for a climb. Had to climb over a little snow but nothing too sketchy. Did have the bejesus scared out of me by a close call with a large and very heavy boulder that decided to slide a flip with just a touch. Luckily I must have a guardian angel who was watching because it flipped away from me. Watch out for the rotten rock and loose scree of all sizes. The upper ridge is not a good place to get in trouble.

Climbed it in late September. The vegetation in fall colors was stunning. Lots of prescribed burns in the area so much of the view of the park was obscured. Found the steep! (2000 ft in 1.25 miles) but lovely trail to the ridge. Catch it where Hungry Horse Creek crosses the road between Dudley and Lost Mare Creek.

Camped with Noelle by the creek in Dudley Bowl, then ascended the next day up the NW ridge, then down-climbed the cliffs on the right side of the bowl. Bugs were rough by the creek.

Climb this one every year. The first mile and a half are brutal, but the views the rest of the way up make up for all the hard work. With all the snowpack remaining this year it's going to be a late one this year.

I have skied the Stanton Glacier 3 times in Sept or Oct. Only summited the first time. One of my favorite mountains.

Good climb with Montanachris. Tough bushwack up and took the new route down. Awesome views, good climb with a good friend, met some cool folks on the way up once we got to the main ridge and got to watch a group of goats for a while on the way down.

Done every year since i've moved here. Such a great view as we drove home to Haskill Basin. Hopefully a tradition that keeps on going.

Learned the value of up-to-date guidebooks on this one. We climbed the now obsolete south side of Hungry Horse creek 'trail'. It was a wet bushwhack through Devil's club thickets and a lot of slick downed timber. But we did top out, so it was worth it!

That's the most direct route and quite a lot of fun cos you don't have a nice groomed trail all the way to the false summit! We go that way on purpose :-) Glad you pursued!!

This is the one that got me hooked on climbing.
Had a crew of six that day.
It was a lot of fun.
Though the last mile down I don't think there was one of us who wasn't screaming with knee pain with each step.

Hot day in the 90s but we did it. This was #3 on my top three mountains to climb. Climbed with Vantana and SBurry.

Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2009
this was the best hike i have ever done so far. i climbed it with my roommate sara and we had a blast. we fueled up on huckleberries when we took breaks on the steep way up.the weather made the experience . we did get caught in a wind storm on the ridge up to the summit. had to stop and hang on, cold but thankfully no rain. after the clouds subsided 2 different rainbow was in view in the valley below us. what a wild experience! the hike down was brutal but the pain was worth it. this will be a traditional hike. i love montana.

A great climb to take in the views of the southern parts of GNP. Climbed with my son Frank. We got up and down at a liesurely pace on this warm July day in 7 hours. Not really a mountain for those seeking solitude...we counted 27 other climbers on the mountain this day!
