First time up the west face, second up to the Gem Glacier overlook, then up the NW ridge. What a great place to sit and look at the wonders of this park!

samhWest Glacier to Granite Park to Gould to Ptarmigan Wall to Swiftcurrent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2005

I had a helluva weekend in 2005. We started at West Glacier on a Friday morning around 5:30 am. Hit the Loop trail up to Granite Park Trails cabin where my hiking partner had to be to work that morning. I met up with some folks and we set off to summit Gould. That evening I joined them for dinner and the next morning set off for a solo traverse of the Ptarmigan Wall Goat Trail (see Summit Post). I arrived in Swiftcurrent just before dark to join friends for car camping complete with wine and gourmet food.

SaintgrizzlySolo & Cliff Trouble...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2007

Successfully summited the mountain solo, with no problems during the ascent, but much difficulty coming down due to taking wrong routes through the cliffs. This caused a couple extra hours of real difficulty on treacherous terrain in the west-facing hot afternoon sun. I enjoyed the climb, and summit. Not so the descent; I was sooo glad to reach my car!

I've wanted to climb Mount Gould ever since seeing a photo of it in one of my calendars. We started from Logan Pass and hiked along the Highline trail. The West Face was a very enjoyable climb through cliffbands, scree, and chimneys. One of my favorite mountain climbs in Glacier NP.

A GMS outing. More solid rock than I was expecting. Thoroughly enjoyed scrambling the numerous short cliff bands all the way up. 30 mph winds on the upper west slopes and over the top left all of us putting on every piece of clothing we had.

This is a fun climb! We parked on the going to the sun road and bushwacked up to the Granite Park Chalet trail and kept on climbing. There were about 6 of us and all made it. The view is great looking to the North and West and even into the plains to the East. We got into some small, very skinny chutes and soon found that only "pencil butts" shall pass through these gates...

A great day hike-I highly recommend it!
