Climbed this one with Harlan and Maddie from Logan Pass. The parking has gotten crazy up there, so we found a lower spot and added some elevation. I attempted this one a few years ago, and the north side climbers trails have become much more defined since then. Just wondering why this peak, with prominence, along the Continental Divide, has no USGS designation?

Paired with Reynolds
Loved all the rocks and cliffs on this one, it wasn't boring that's for sure. Nice views too.
Started off the climb alone then ascended up with a couple. There were pretty much no views, lots of fog but still totally worth it. Will have to go back on a much sunnier day.
Did this with Reynolds Peak. From the top of Reynolds it took us an hour to get to the summit of Dragons Tail. We took the 4th class chimney and that was interesting and loose. The class three ledges adjacent to it are alot better
Views are good of Hidden Lake, but probably better from Reynolds. Also from Reynolds, Dragon's Tail looks amazing. You can do just part of the tail and get most of the experience.
Nearly cloudless skies most of the day, which began with temps in the 30s and the first snow of the year just barely feathering the higher peaks in the park. Fun route; the goat trail is lively enough to hold your attention and the way up to the ridge is a fun scramble. Great views all around. We watched hordes of people trekking up and down Reynolds but only met two other climbers on the Dragon's Tail. Great hike.
What Fred said.
Was a very fine day!
2012 with Moni on a beautiful but hot day.
4 Sep 2009 with Vernon Garner (Saintgrizzly) - a very fun scramble from the ledge to ridge top.
Note - We used the ledge shown in THIS PHOTO by FlatheadNative, not the one shown on the main page. This ledge is also marked by cairns and was marked with flagging. The trail on this ledge leads to a spot on the first large couloir that can be easily crossed and does not match the description in Edwards.
Over the spine, back down the goat trail
Climbed with Dan from MN. Very interesting climb and route.
Climbed with GMS
Another great day climbing. I was not a big fan of the goat trail, but I loved the cliffs. Six of us were greeted at the summit by a friendly goat. Thanks to the route description and photos in the book "Climb Glacier National Park.
Great day in the park. Fun and easy climb to the top of the ridge and nice walk to the summit. Had to pretty much run down the Hidden Lake Trail before I was surrounded by walls of tourists. Climbed with Rebelgrizz.
Had to climb it after seeing the ridge on the way to Reynolds. Trip report
2006 with Bud.
Climbed with Andinistaloco and FlatheadNative. Fun mountain, awesome day, better views.
Fun stuff! This was the one semi-sunny day I had in Glacier. Met a couple other sp folks for a good half day out... awesome views.
Yep. great day.
Climbed again 8-7-2010
After summitting DT we Traversed on the eastern side toward Sperry Glacier Basin then to "Surprise" Pass and then to Hidden Lake Outlet and Logan Pass after part of the group summitted Bearhat. It is a very interesting descent off of Dragon's Tail.
