The climb from Bird Women Pass was a delight and the summit ridge was unforgettable!
climbed with dad and brother, summit ridge was fun to traverse
Great views on my second time to the summit. One of the best peaks in the park.
Great hike - ran into some nice folks from the Flathead on top. Sometimes it's easy to grumble about the crowds but then you remember you're lounging on top of a mountain in shorts and a t-shirt and casually identifying distant peaks while eating a Snickers.

Special summit as it was #40 of the season. The haze and smoke made for an unbelievable sunrise
A spookier outing than I expected, especially going solo. More exposure than I'm used to on class 3, maybe 4? That pitch to gain the summit has a bit of a pucker effect, and the gaps in the summit ridge will definitely get your situational awareness up. Overall, a fun time, with some route finding challenges on the way.
From Clements with Drew, Tyler, and Terezie. One of my favorite summits of the summer, with some of the best views one could imagine.
Took about 1hr 45 minutes from Logan Pass to summit. Threatening clouds to the west made for a hasty descent. Great views of the Livingston Range.
A fun/quick climb from Logan Pass
Tried it two years before as part of a two peak day after climbing the east side of Clements but ended short with severe leg cramps. Took three friends up this time, one of the funnest mountains I have ever climbed, will definitely do it again.
Beautiful weather. Fun route.
Nice weather, and the route is lots of fun with some route-finding necessary despite (or perhaps because of) ubiquitous cairns littering the slopes. The summit ridge is fantastic, with just enough scrambling and exposure to keep you on your toes. Took a quick side trip to the small northeast ridge spur before heading back down; it's well worth the extra 15 minutes for the great view of the north face you've just been standing precipitously on top of. A Glacier classic.
got disoriented on the summit ridge due to low clouds. eventually made it back. no comment on views!
On trail run of oberlin, clements, cannon
Beautiful day - Cannon then Oberlin.
Also did Oberlin & Clements. Don A. & I met up with Rod & Bill on the summit of Clements and went on to Cannon together. Cannon was much more interesting than I had expected. There was some fun class 3&4 climbing.
We took different routes up and down the gullies just to see which was easier. Was a hot, sunny, windy day. We missed the trail early on that was hidden by snow and we had to create our own route to BW pass. Lots of snow this year
Solo (as in alone). Wow - 32 years since I did it last - that's longer than I had been alive when I was there last. A beautiful sunny warm day with little or no wind.
1979 with Moni and Bob & Linda Stephan -a beautiful crisp fall day.
1969 with Bill Bishop - a cold and blustery day
1997 with GMS
1985 with Bill
Great climb. Amazing views in every direction. Make sure to mark the gully that you ascend so you know which one to to use for your decent.
