Chief Mountain, Southwest Slope Route

Postby FlatheadNative » Wed Jul 14, 2010 4:02 pm

This route was just added after summitting the mountain on July 11, 2010.

Check it out if you'd like.

Chief Mountain, Southwest Slope Route

I have not included a specific approach route since there are at least four to choose from but I have briefly mentioned each of them in the route. The goal is to get to the saddle between Ninaki and Chief where the actual route begins. I have attempted to provide approximate mileage and elevation gain for each of the approaches.

I've decided to redo and hopefully "improve" some of my oldest Montana Bitterroot Mountains. The first completed one is for Bare Peak. I've added routes to the Middle and West Summits and added more and newer pictures. Check it out.

Fred Spicker and I just added the Southwest Ridge Route to Reynolds Mountain. We have also included a slight variation as well. Please check it out.

Several snowy days in Glacier National Park turned the higher peaks white. The snow on Sunday (8/29) was as low as Big Bend below Haystack Butte. Logan Pass was pretty white on Sunday as well. Here's a couple of pics from there:

The snow has melted off Logan Pass and below but on Tuesday 8/31 all the peaks higher up had significant snow. This might impact climbing plans especially for the highest summits.[/i]

Page completely redone for GRIZZLY MOUNTAIN, which is located in the Southwest corner of Glacier National Park's Two Medicine area. New images, greatly expanded writing, and the clunky-looking old SP v1 format replaced by utilizing the SP v2 capabilities....
