|My first Glacier Park summit - was a nice hike to get acclimated to the Glacier rock and terrain and wind! A short climb maybe 1.5 hours to the summit from the visitor center. Nice views from the top too - reward far exceeds the effort to summit this peak. Climbed with my favorite climbing partner Aaron and his long time cimbing companion Vern. Great day!|

Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2004
|One of the easier climbs in GNP (Divide Mountain, in the St. Mary area--and also a nice climb--is another), this was quite enjoyable. Climbed with Aaron Johnson and Ellen Ritt; we followed the newly-laid-down cairns (due to over-use erosion the Park Service is changing the route--don't just head out across the tundra on this mountain!) from the waterfall to the saddle running between Clements and Oberlin, then proceeded up the cliffs toward the Oberlin summit until the winds became so strong (they were wailin' across that saddle!) we thought it dangerous to continue, at which point we cut across the southern upper scree field to the summit. Entire ascent took maybe an hour-and-a-half.|
Nice views of the Logan Pass Peaks! Nice day, particularly since it was my first GNP climb with Aaron and Ellen!

Fun & easy jaunt. 1,500 ft. elevation gain in the 1.5 hrs to the summit. Patches of fresh snow; waterfalls off the rocky bench. Summit ridge of brick red argillite - beautiful. No evidence of a summit register, but fossils everywhere. Non-technical; used only plastic mtn boots & gaiters. Took crampons & axe but used neither.
My 1st trip to Glacier--unforgettable. My husband has spent many, many days climbing there & had always longed to share the grandeur with me. Grizzly was next to boardwalk the next day.

|The most accessible of Glacier's real-deal peaks, Oberlin is a real treat with limited effort. |

|Fred Spicker||Route Climbed: S Ridge Date Climbed: 17 July 1982 & 5 Sept. 2012|
|We were always saving Mount Oberlin, the shortest easiest summit climb in Glacier Park, for "one of those days". |
The day came on 17 July 1982 - 6 inches of new snow, cold and blustery - summer in Montana!
Climbed with Monica Spicker.
30 years later - did as a side trip on the way to Clements - 5 Sept. 2012 - alone.
23 Jun 2015 with Moni - via S ridge
