|Hey, sent a message earlier but my account is super screwed up and I'm not even sure it went through. But we're doing Stanton on Saturday, any special notes on winter ascents? How's the avalanche danger on the ridge? Any differences in the approach?|

|My first glacier climb and almost my last. Helicoptered off the mountain after a fall on the snow. Heidi, Julie, and Alden were with me. I'll never forget it.|

This was my first peak of many Glacier summits in 2012. Climbed during opening crew with Josh, Sean, Anders, and Becky. We had stared at it for weeks from the Village Inn, our temporary home. This was my forth time on Howe Ridge, but first time to summit! Great views of the Lake area, and the Livingston Range!

|Left the trail at its high point on Howe Ridge and made our way up the southwest ridge towards the summit. Encoutered a foot or so of crusty snow on the way. Spectacular views of Trout Lake along the ridge top - I was surprised to see Mount Cleveland and Mount Merritt far off in the distance. We descended a drainage that instersected the Trout Lake Trail about 1/2 mile from the trailhead - difficult descent! Slippery rocks, frozen screen, and detours around steep, icy waterfalls made for a tiring couple of hours down!|
05/12/12 - with Rebecca Lahr, Josh Olson, Sean Doyle and Josh Terry. Bluebird skies and countless ladybugs on the summit.
05/12/13 - with Rebecca Lahr, Josh Olson and Drew Wilkerson. Glad Drew had a more uneventful trip this time around! Enormous avalanche debris pile over the Howe Ridge Trail no more than a mile from the trailhead was quite impressive. Would be interested to see how the NPS dealt with this immense mess.

Views to the north were stunning. Did you guys see that giant beaver dam?

|Solo climb on Fathers Day. Mosquitoes so thick I had to put on my wind breaker and pull the hood tight, could hear them bouncing off the nylon. But still a beautiful climb.|

|My last hike of the 2006 season. Brought a friend along. Long, tedious climb but affords a different perspective on the park. The first time I felt I really led the climb.|
