Last of 2012 summer  Sucess!

I scrambled atop Bearhat for my last peak of the 2012 summer (#39). Sadly, I had a bird's eye view of the NPS recovering a missing person's body out from behind Hidden Lake.

Gorgeous  Sucess!

An absolute treat, and one I envied for 2 years from pictures. The approach is annoying with a climb then a drop then a big climb, and the Edwards "route" is hard to follow. Shooting up the notch gully on the East face made for some periodic 5th class moves with exposure. Great solo fun and I got one of the greatest pictures of a goat ever who came to scout me for the herd. Breathtaking and heart stopping views from up top. Takes all day. Check my pics and I will have them up soon.

East Face route to North(false) summit  Sucess!

Due to late snow melt this year we walked snow from Hidden Lake all the way to the east side gully, where we finally found some solid rock. Going back next year to try the real(south) summit.

North Summit  Sucess!

Glacier Mountaineering Society outing. Took the standard route to the north summit. Hiked the ridge over and looked at going over to the south summit but decided there wasn't enough time. Over all great day for climbing in Glacier.

Mostly S face.  Sucess!

Good introduction to climbing in Glacier. Nothing too technically difficult but the exposure and shit-rock means you ought to respect it anyway. Killer views (when I wasn't in a cloud).

SE Gulley snow climb  Sucess!

Usually climb the SE Gulley (fairly prominent gulley quite a way to the left of the big cleft in the E face) every year as soon as the road opens up - - ski in to the base of the gulley, ditch the gear and straight up. The gulley is steep, up to 70 degrees + in spots. It is good spring training.

Climb pretty much each June/July since 2002.

Route Climbed: East Face  Sucess!

Easy, fun climb to the top via Hidden Lake. Nothing worse than class 3 encountered. We just aimed left of the large rift in the east face of the mountain and found an enjoyable way up. Wonderful view of the park, including Sperry Glacier Basin to the south.

Great Climb  Sucess!

Summited with a few friends. Much further from Logan Pass than I thought it was! Incredible views.

Twice To Summit  Sucess!

One summit was in great weather, the next in heavy mist and light rain. I preferred the latter, which was a very still, quiet adventure, with my head in the coulds and completely cut off from the world! One of the best views anywhere!

Many thanks to Blair & Peggie from New Hampshire who I joined up with en route, helped with route finding, and were wonderful company. We all enjoyed the climb and marvelled at the views.

Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: 24 Jul 1973  Sucess!

This was my very first Glacier Park peak - the rock took some getting used to, but the view from the top was spectacular.
