Did this solo in 2010. The initial scree scramble after leaving the trail was a little sketchy because I was worried about kicking rocks loose and murdering a hiker down below. Once I gained the ridge the it was spectacular. I particularly enjoyed the decent to Redgap Pass.
goat trail to seward mtn Date Climbed: Jul 9, 1998
Also climbed this route enroute to Yellow Mtn on 8/14/97 with Sandy Everts and Vern Ingraham...a long day (13 hours)in which we took the steep shortcut down to the Many Galcier entrance station where we collapsed while Vern hitched a ride back to get his vehicle at Swiftcurrent Inn
11 hours of solo hiking/scrambling on a fantastic summer day in Glacier... couldn't have asked for anything more! amazing terrain, wonderful vistas... hope to take the goat trail to Redgap Pass and hit up Yellow Mountain sometime in the very near future.
