Trifecta   Sucess!

Chief Lodgepole, Grizzly, and Painted Tepee. Strong winds made the day a bit harder then anticipated but incredible nonetheless.

#142  Sucess!

Hiked up with Leila, Chad, and Lisa. Hit Painted Teepee and Chief Lodgepole along the way. A gorgeous day though a bit windy. Grizzly isn't necessarily an interesting or challenging climb but the views are nice.

Grizzly  Sucess!

Beautiful peak with views into lesser known parts of Glacier. Got pummeled with 70 mph winds, sleet, and rain on the way down to camp at Cobalt.

Socked in  Sucess!

09/28/18 with Ryan Stadheim, Emily Hall, and Paul Fotter.

Forecast called for sunshine and calm. Ended up having to do the 'lean walk' to counterbalance the wind and ascending slippery snow and getting socked in near the summit. Always an adventure in Glacier! Views into the Park Creek Valley on our way out were inspiring. Great day with the best company!

Cobalt Lake base camp  Sucess!

Spent the night at Cobalt Lake to cut down on the lengthy approach that had caused me to turn back on previous summit attempts. Left camp a bit after 7am, on top by 10:30am. Incredible views in all directions! I was especially impressed by the expansive views to the south, which included views of faraway mountains in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Swan Range, and Mission Mountains.

Grizzled  Sucess!

Hot,hot day. Also did Chief Lodgepole & Painted Teepee. Came up the scree chute to the South East of Cobalt Lake because of all the snow. We ran short of water. Coming out felt like a death march. Two of us cramped up big time. But, it was still a great day!!!

Summitted the bad boy in 90 degree heat. Not a pleasant trip for me.

Standard Route from Two Medicine Pass  Sucess!

Camped by Rockwell Falls after skiing in across both lakes. Skied up to Two Medicine Pass on day two- hemmed and hawed about Rockwell vs. Grizzly- settled on Grizzly. Storm moved in quickly and dropped visibility to almost nothing, but somehow we made it up and back down again. This was probably one of my most difficult climbs ever because of the severe conditions. Sure made it memorable though!

Route Climbed: Standard, via trail beginning at Two Medicine Campground Date Climbed: July 6, 2005

Nice, nice outing in Glacier, with an unforgettable experience coming down, in the Two Medicine Pass "Wind Tunnel." For the first time in my life I think I experienced actual hurricane force winds—walking at a 45 degree angle, carefully placing each foot so as to brace it against a rock, and still at one point, for a brief second my legs were lifted out from under me, and I was airborne. VERY disconcerting, to say the least(!), and the only thing saving me was that my legs hit a protruding boulder. I was sooo glad to get off that pass! The wind was like something solid.... Wow!!!
