distressbarkNE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2014


Camped in a beautiful, boulder filled meadow above the Jackson Glacier Trail with Rebecca Lahr. Headed for the summit at 7am, arriving at 11am. Beautiful views of Harrison Glacier and a sea of peaks in seemingly all directions. Rare for a GNP peak, took the same amount of time on the descent. Chunky talus on the descent towards the Jackson Glacier Trail made for slow going. Impressive mountain!

admiralcapnGot lost


No crampons, so even the minimal snow blocked me from attaining the ridge until much higher on the mountain. All morning on the scree slope tuckered me out; topped out around 9,000 ft. Tried to take a short cut left (toward Gunsight lake) off the ridge on the way down and got into some scary climbing (as opposed to hiking), but eventually made it back to the shuttle!

Awesome weather. Brutal scree. Was a father/daughter outing along with my buddy Dustin. Incredible views from this summit which is 1000ft taller than most of the surrounding peaks.

TwaMontanaVery Long Fun Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2012


David and I hit the trail at 5:30am in the dark. The toughest part was getting on to the NE ridge. From there it was a great climb. It had snowed the day before on the upper mountain so an inch of fresh slowed us down a little. Truly a massive mountain. Great views. We got back to the cars just before dark at 9pm. That last mile and a half up hill was exhausting.

MtMtnHikerPerfect Day for Climbing in GNP  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2012


Went up via the NE Ridge route and Jackson Glacier trail. At the summit 6 hours after leaving the Gunsight campground. Two of the three in our group made it up to the top. We decided to come down the NE ridge on the north face side. Took a long time getting one of the party memebers down making for a 12 hour round trip from Gunsight CG. Would have been quicker and easier to just descend back to the Jackson Glacier trail. None the less, an awesome day for climbing in Glacier, couldn't have dreamed of more perfect weather.

mike_lindacherNortheast Ridge?
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2012


no success. attempted the northeast ridge prior gunsight pass and ran into what i considered loose, exposed class III to IV stuff. wasn't exactly as straightforward as i thought from edward's description. i noticed that some have done this as a day hike - kudos. will someday return, it's a massive mountain. attempted again via jackson glacier the following day, weather prevented upward movement. i did find an ice axe on the north slope. so, if by some random chance you lost one and can identify it, it's yours ......

admiralcapnRe: Northeast Ridge?


sounds like almost the exact same issues I encountered: loose, laborious hiking and a constant nagging feeling that I wasn't where I was supposed to be. I also wish to return to conquer this peak, but since it's almost 2,000 miles from home, it might have to wait!

larch32Nice outing  Sucess!
Climbed in a day-- I'd say this is one of Edward's most conservative time estimates.

Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2009


A hail storm deprived us our summit views but increased the adventure factor and that along with good company made for an excellent day nonetheless.

What a f#*king view! One of the finest I've ever seen. Like to think I've seen my fair share to. To a sketchy direct route from near Gunsight pass. Quickest summit stop ever as weather was bearing in and my pack was at the trail near the pass

KristinaALAn adventure  Sucess!


With several coworkers. Hiked to the base in the rain. Camped that night and got a somewhat late start the next day. Reached the summit in time to inhale a sandwich for lunch before being chased off by a snow storm. This kind of climb is best done with people you already know and trust
