Part of a 3 day. Started at packers roost to fifty mountain. Climbed Kipp on day 1. Poor weather delayed day 2, but we still managed to climb Cathedral. We broke camp, climbed Ahern, and investigated Ipasha before hiking down to the loop on day 3. With Sean and X (and her 100th peak)
I took a Turkish lad and my climbing friend from Iceberg Lake trailhead to Ahern Peak via Iceberg Notch and back via Swiftcurrent Pass with a detour at Granite Park Chalet to fire up my Turkish friend's spirit as this was his first ever hike of his life other than St. Mary Falls! He still hates me but thanks me to this day.
En route to Ipasha Peak via the yo yo route from Many Glacier with Ely & Tyler. One of my all time greatest days in the mountains. Ahern is a very worthy objective in its own route. I recommend this peak whenever I have the chance.
Spectacular views from this one.
Was cloudy on the summit with few views.
Climbed with Vern Ingraham from Many Glacier via Ptarmigan Tunnel
Also: 8/17/97 w/ VI enroute to Ipasha via Iceberg Notch, 10/15/98 w/VI from Loop
