Went up the West Flank and down the East Ridge, an awesome outing. Very clear views of Glacier, and a great deal of snow seemed to remain in the Swan Range.

First time to the Rocky Mountain Front - why did I wait so long? Quite an awesome area!! Took the trail over the pass and then headed up to the west saddle. The main couloir up the center of the face looked nasty so I found a better route a bit south of there. Great summit views!! Then down the east ridge and up to the unnamed east peak. Then down to the trail again just above the waterfall and out. Pretty fun loop!! Lots of wildlife around here!!

Bad weather shut me down at the west face saddle. I'll be back this summer.

Climbed from base camp at around 6,400 feet in the Headquarters Creek drainage just off the main trail. This was our campsite on night four of a fifty mile, five day loop up to the North Wall on the Continental Divide. The west ridge provded to be rather tiring with all my backpacking gear, but the summit views made it all the worthwhile! Amazed by how much I could see, including some prominent peaks in Glacier National Park. Highly recommend the east ridge for descent - I ran down 1,300 feet of scree in about 17 minutes. Incredible mountain.

Hiked the western flank with my dog and descended via east ridge. Amazing views even though the previous days had been smoky. Saw two black bears on two separate occasions. 4 mountain goats too. Makes me want to explore deeper into The Bob. Saw 4 or 5 parties of people. No one climbing though.

Great climb! A lot of exposure via the northwest ridge route but very worth it! Stick to the top of the ridge instead of going beneath it. If you do happen to find yourself to far below, prepare for some class 4 climbing.

Climbed Rocky a few years ago, and returned this time with some friends. Summit views are much more spectacular than I recalled. Went up from the west saddle, came down the east ridge. Fantastic peak, and the views of Old Baldy are amazing.

With Fred. We went up the West Flank and descended the East Ridge/Flank scree route. 2500 feet down in less than 1 hour! This traverse of the mountain is the best way to go. Beautiful views. 7 hours car to car.

Very, very rewarding hike...we went about two weeks after saintgrizzly and the last of the snow had melted off the mountain top so it was done easily in about 3 hours from Headquarters Pass, and down in about 1 1/2 hours...amazing view

Nice outing with the GMS (Glacier Mountaineering Society). From about the 7,000 foot level, the ascent was up snow fields--tiring, but certainly preferable to the occasional runs of scree which had to be overcome! Leisurely pace had us on top in four hours; the snow fields had us down in 2! Very, very nice day!

Was working for USGS up the Briggs creek drainage and had to get to the other side of Headquarters pass for the pick up. Instead of hiking the 17 miles around I opted to go over the mountain via the South West Ridge from Miners creek. Spectacular views, great climb.

I'm not exacly sure of the year, but I was out in Helena on a business trip and decided I'd stay a few extra days and check out the local scenery. It was the middle of July and, having only experienced the White Mountains of NH, I was quite surprised by how dry it was (no humidity), no bugs, and the sun being out at 10PM. Awesome! I just brought my stuff into the woods and camped.

I climbed this with my family a long time ago(can't remeber the exact date). I found a bunch of fossilized sea shells on the way up the side of Rocky, support for the Biblical Flood perhaps?

I originally planned to summit the following morning and just do some scouting this afternoon, but the weather was so nice that I just grabbed some extra snacks and went up. Aside from my wife and son who accompanied me halfway up along the maintained trail, no one else was out here.
