Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2009

rebelgrizz

After 3 failed attempts in 2008 (all due to weather...2 of which we never even left the car) finally climbed this mountain. Still windy, but not as bad as last year...only spent 8 minutes at the summit due to wind, but what a REALLY FUN mountain to climb. Summitted with partners Cougar14 and Kitty.

Approached the saddle from Lunch Creek and then climbed up to the summit. Terrible wind just like last year. I only spent a few minutes at the summit and was ready to leave. Climbed with Rebelgrizz and JFK.

A short approach from a high trailhead makes this an attractive climb.

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

montanaboyLunch Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2003

montanaboy

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.

SaintgrizzlyLunch Creek Approach  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2004

Saintgrizzly

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!
