Oddly, Red Mountain is entirely omitted from Gordon Edwards' A Climber's Guide to Glacier National Park. It's an impressively large mountain, and at 9,377 feet, it is one of the tallest peaks on Glacier's east side and rewards climbers with a commanding summit view. However, it is most certainly overshadowed in both height and bulk by neighbor Rising Wolf Mountain (9,513 feet), which appropriately rises behind and to the left. No maintained trails access the serene and seldom-visited Lonely Lakes, visible in the foreground. Taken from the summit of Mad Wolf Mountain.
