It's about time we have something here from the Jewel Basin area. I haven't been there yet and am glad to see some photos and information about it.

Thanks again Bob. I absolutely love that area and am looking at Mount Aeneas as I type this response. It has changed a lot with more people getting up there compared to when I was a kid but the views are still spectacular. There are lots of cool features there. Perhaps I will be able to add some more peaks/information/photos this summer. I am thinking perhaps Crater Mountain, Columbia and Teakettle will be the next on the list.

That would be great. I'd actually been considering climbs of Crater and Three Eagles, but they no longer fit my itinerary.

Those are just day climbs for me. I will look at 3 Eagles as well.

Hey Blake, I just did Columbia about three weeks ago; as you might expect, wonderful summit views of nearby Great Northern, plus southern GNP (Stimson and St. Nick are really put into a nice landscape!), and of course, views of the Swan Range running south, and the Flathead Valley. The problem with the mountain is that of the access trail, which was re-routed within the past ten years or so due to private property issues. The re-routing changed an approximate 4,200' elevation-gain climb into one around 5,500'--including a fun 800 or 900 foot climb on the way OUT, for crying out loud! Lots of snow work, of course, when we did it, and I got some photos of the above-mentioned mountains, but probably not enough to put up a page. If you do Columbia, then decide to put up a page, I'll have a few to add, which might help.

Great page for a great area. Consider adding some backcountry skiing information as this is huge in the area.

I am not really into that but if you would like to put something together I could add it and give you credit.
