Hello, darlin'! Given...

Hello, darlin'! Given sufficient horizontal initial velocity, you'd fall over 2000 feet before splattering onto Sexton Glacier, should you decide to jump from the summit. Try this big one!

Question?

Is there a technical route on this face?

Re: Question?

Answer: yes.



Beyond that, I can't give you any detailed info. :)



Hopefully Fred will speak up here. I strongly recommend the climbing guide listed in the book section of this peak.



I believe there are tough scrambles on Matahpi's north face, as well as the obvious huge east face shown here.

Re: Question?

I am not aware of this face having been climbed, however, some very strong climbers have been at work in Glacier over the years and similar faces have been climbed. Many routes in the Park go unreported.



Hopefully, a new edition of the Climber's Guide to Glacier National Park will come out sometime soon - the current edition is copyrighted in 1990.



In the meantime, the best source for information regarding recent ascents is probably the Glacier Mountaineering Society:



P.O. Box 1241, Kalispell, MT 59903



Website (not recently updated): GMS



The editor of the Journal of the society is:
