Please forgive this 20 year old summit post. This was my wife and I's first summit together. The accessibility and nearness to Swiftcurrent cabins will tempt the less experienced, which included myself 20 years ago. The route up the south couloir through the red cliffs was not 'obvious' (see referenced guidebook) to us - but we struggled up to the spectacular top. But our inexperienced eyes were even more clueless the way down - and we had a terrifying descent from ledge to ledge down the cliffs. This was the first time I ever wanted to kiss the level earth when we finished. So if you are a new hiker, don't underestimate this wonderful mountain. Do it - but follow the route shown in this site.

We made it to the top but the winds were incredible that day. We had planned to head to Crowfeet Mountain and do the traverse but we went down instead using the same route on the return.

Climbed with Fred and Moni Spicker. There was still enough snow in the couloir's upper reaches they gave me crampon/ice axe lessons, slowing our ascent, but the lessons were worth it! Then traversed over to Crowfeet, making a long day, but a GOOD day. Views from the top are Glacier Park wonderful!

Climbed with Vernon Garner and Moni. A cool blustery day with great views. Descent to Henkel - Crowfeet col, then to the top of Crowfeet and down to Ptarmigan Trail.
