Bummed to encounter a fair bit of snow in the gully on Going-to-the-Sun Mountain, so went for Matahpi instead. Easy scramble with great views. Especially enjoyed the drop down towards Sexton Glacier and the beautiful blue tarns at the base of Cracker Peak.

I climbed it with Going-to-the-Sun. Pleasant trip and saw a ton of goats who were very interested in me.

Climbed on a terrible combination of a few inches of wet snow on top of scree. Still an enjoyable day.

Great views, but very windy. Thanks to a great photo in Passmore's book "Climb Glacier National Park" we found the easy climbers trail. Exciting end to our day - we ran into a Grizzly hiking down thru the dry stream bed.

Did a late afternoon scramble up this peak with my 10 year old son Frank. This was the first of three peaks for us this weekend (Little Chief and Divide the next two days).

Summited Matahpi in about 2.5 hours and then decided we did not have enough yet. So we looked for a way off the summit block to the north but could not find a safe way to downclimb without ropes so traversed down the west ridge and then across the northern scree fields to Siyeh Pass and then back to Siyeh Bend Trailhead.

Great climb with awesome views in every direction....especially of Siyeh....actual climb from the saddle was looser than I thought it would be. Summitted with Cougar14 and that really tough Kitty!

Done in combination with Going to the Sun - we practically ran up the ridge to summit and get back down to meet up with the rest of the group who was waiting. Fun side trip!

Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2006

This was a thoroughly enjoyable 1000 foot ascent from the saddle between Matahpi and GTTS Mountains, done during GMS Mountaineering Week with Aaron and Ellen, and a very nice group of GMS folks. The view of Sexton Glacier from the summit is quite memorable—it's quite a bit larger than the view from the Sun Road makes it appear, and from Matahpi you only see the top half! Anyway, a very nice outing, quickly done—and it's a good thing because it was shortly after returning to the saddle and traversing GTTS that blister problems hit in a major way. Ouch! But made both summits, and despite my feet a great day!

In 2003 I attepted it with 2 siblings and my father, we were forced to turn back when the wind got so strong we were nearly blown off the mountain. This past time I climbed with my father, and 2 friends who are much more experienced climbers. It's a fun climb but extremely hard on the joints.

A fun scramble with no one else in sight. made a misguided attempt down the North Ridge, which appeared to be loose class 4/5, on my way to Siyeh.

Went with a great GMS group during Mountaineering week. A good time was had by all. The weathered Gatorade bottle is still there and surviving.

Pleasant link-up with Going-to-the-Sun Mountain. If you only have half of a day, Matahpi alone may be a better bet than GTTS. The views are better IMO, though the climbing is less demanding.
