Date Climbed: Oct 6, 2013

GlacierCountry

A little sketchy on the steep slab area due to snow and ice but an epic trip. We made base camp at the lower lake. Snow started at about 6000ft. Crampons and micro-spikes was all we needed. Several feet of snow accumulated in spots higher up but the exposed areas were sporadically snow and ice covered.

Amazing area. My dog and spent the night at TH. Started off around 8:15 AM, summitted around 1:15. Very steep trail. Saw quite a few other parties of folks at lower lake. And one climbing party. No significant wildlife seen however.

I was a little out of shape for this one, it reallly kicked my butt! The wind was so strong near the summit it was actually blowing my wife off the ground. But it was soooooooooo worth it! Definitely on my "must do again" list.

2010 Oct 14 with Joe, Paul & Sue. Nice day, really fun hike. Upper Rumble Lake is idyllic. It was hard to head back.

Awesome exposure on the saddle ay! Camped at upper Rumble Creek Lake which didn't seem to bother the five goats that showed up shortly after we arrived and decided to hang out there with us all day! Remember to pee on the rocks and not the turf!! From the lower lake on and upward, this mountain has one of the most enjoyable routes I have been on!

Unseasonably warm weather coupled with no snow made this a great day!

Climbed this thing in 99 (weathered off up top), 2000, 01 lead a GMS trip and May 2004 (another GMS trip). Had it on the calendar for May 2009, no takers.

Still want to do it in the winter.

Has anyone ever climbed the waterfall between upper and lower Rumble Lake ?

My son and I backpacked up to Rumble Creek Lake, spent the night, then climbed in morning. Very beautiful area, fairly easy climb, fish in the lake. First climb in the Swans!

Epic turns up high, but a storm moved in with extremely high winds that prevented us from going to the very top. Plus we already hiked 3500 ft and we're pretty tired. There's a nice kicker on top of the first knob before you pass tree line if anyone wants to spend 3-4 hrs hiking to it. Snowpack was deep, light, and stable up high. Skiing below 5500 ft was not so good, not much snow and nasty crust layer.

This was a great climb, forests, flowers, lakes, waterfalls and sheer rock faces. The views of the Missions beyond the Seeley Swan valley are great. The sheer west face of Holland Peak make for a great backdrop to stare at from the two lakes.

An absolutely wonderful area! Climbed with a group from the Glacier Mountaineering Society on one of the hottest days of the summer. Some fun descending the steep west-facing slope in the late afternoon sun! Hot, hot, hot!
