Some of the most intense winds I’ve ever dealt with. Made for a mostly snow-free route once we reached the ridge that leads to the abandoned lookout and then on to the summit. Incredible views!

Great 'rest day' summit. Easy, straightforward, rewarding views.
Excellent way to enjoy some awesome views of Glacier NP when you only have a few hours. Beautiful summit
Friends invited me to hike Divide under a full moon. The common thing to do when you work in St. Mary. However this was going to be my 3rd time doing Divide so I went as fast as I could and got it in 38 minutes 48 seconds car-to-summit! You can beat me going down if you like, I'd like to keep my knees young, thanks.
Fast evening climb with 2013 St. Mary Lodge employees - Ben, Josh, Tyler, Drew, and Dan
First summit of the season at GNP. Climbed after work with Drew, Tyler, Tyler, Ben and Josh
I've climbed Divide every summer I worked at GNP in St Mary. from 2013 to 2018. Some seasons multiple times.
climbed it in both 2011 and 2012. Enjoyed it both times
2011 late winter snowshoe with Cody Iunghun
2009 - w/ Natalie Savage, Malia Pereza and Alex Malich
Another opening crew climbed in 2012, with Lia. One of my earlier climbs in the St. Mary Area. A Glacier classic. Hard to not evoke the spirit of Mr. Edwards on this summit! The Great White Pyramid!
Messed around on the boulder field before realizing we should have been on the ridge...
Finally made it up in 2012; a hike I'd been wanting to do since I was last here in '08. Very quick -- up in 54 minutes, and down in 43 minutes -- but still quite a leg-burner. The wind was brutal, and was blasting me from the west. Took my wife up to Scenic Point in the afternoon!
Summitted with Rebelgrizz & Levitator on a windy day. Nice views.
I've climbed Divide perhaps ten times in the last five summers. Only recently did I discover that the East side has relatively good rock for technical climbing. Roughly three short pitches with some low angle areas that allow you to traverse and pick your poison. Suprisingly good gear.
Just climbed this for the third time in october with my buddy Logan. It's a lot of fun when covered in snow. We spent the night in the shack during a huge blizzard.
Climbed with good friend Ely B exactly 24 days after flipping my car in Death Valley and being airlifted to a Vegas hospital. Yikes.
Climbed with Blake Passmore and his friends Mike and Rod on a day on which the clouds won out over the sun. Nice views while they lasted, and Rod and I reached the summit just in time to catch the views from there as well.
A favorite peak of Saintgrizzly's...Blake and I offered up a greeting to him up top.
With Elaine. Very windy.
Snowshoed in from hwy 89. Going up the shoulder to the ridge was a little tough, and I was surprised by considerable snow and ice on the ridge itself. Went to the lookout and enjoyed the frigid sunshine before deciding that a summit attempt might not be wise solo given the wind and ice and cornices. Never seen such cornices on Divide before. Climbed many many times in the summers, and twice during previous winters. this one was a doozy. Saw Bugwik's tracks going in but I skipped the road and xc'd it and never saw them again on the approach or climb, so he must have gone up the nw face to the ridge.
Climbed with a large group of The Rocky Mountaineers as we wrapped up our annual Glacier Classic weekend in the park.
