Mount Gould
From the Grinnell Glacier Trail, one can catch a great glimpse of the steep northeast face and sheer east face of Mount Gould (9,553 ft). The wall rises some 4,000 feet from the valley below, and requires technical rock climbing with class 5 and 6 pitches. It's much more easily climbed from near Haystack Butte on the Highline Trail, which is on the opposite side of Mount Gould from this vantage point.

From left to right: the broad north of face of Piegan Mountain (9,220 ft); following the saddle to the right is Pollock Mountain (9,190 ft); Bishop's Cap (9,127 ft), which is the first and highest spire atop the Garden Wall; Mount Gould (9,533 ft); Angel Wing (7,430 ft), whose sheer north face hides is completely shaded; and Grinnell Glacier Trail.
