|did this in the afternoon as an introduction to Glacier NP. Upper Lunch Creek is very pretty and I nearly ran into a group of Bighorns. Plenty of loose rock to negotiate on the way up to the ridge. Good views from the top|

Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2003
|A beautiful wind free mid 70's late summer day. Crowds non-existent. A rare look at all the peaks without snow and the brown tundra surrounding Logan Pass. This made the list as one of my favorite climbs.|
Also, made a trip up on 8/1/2004 after a long day on Bearhat the day before.

|Saintgrizzly||Lunch Creek Approach |
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2004
|Enjoyable solo climb. Ascended via snow-filled couloir leading off to the right at the top of the large basin which provides entry (and through which Lunch Creek flows) to both Piegan and Pollock. Did the couloir to practice using crampons (which were an absolute necessity on the ice), but it would have been easy enough to avoid the couloir had I so chosen.|
Mis-judged my water supply (that is, I drank it all!), and thus descended the SW-facing slope during one of the hottest days of the entire summer with nothing to drink; approximately half way down, just when the heat was becoming quite uncomfortable, I came across a spring flowing out of the mountain. Cold, cold, cold, and the best water I've ever had in my life!
