Via Stoney Indian Traverse, starting from Iceberg Lake and climbing Iceberg Notch, Ahern, Ipasha, Kipp Cathedral, and Wahcheechee along the way. Exited via Cattle Queen Creek and Swiftcurrent Pass.
Daytrip from Goat Haunt.
Climbed via Stoney Indian route with Lou. 4th of the big 6 for both of us. Great day, weather held off just long enough to summit, take a few photos and boogie before a thunderstorm rolled in. Saw a sow grizzly with 2 cubs digging moths on top. Fantastic route, lots of fun!

Stoney Indian Traverse
Climbed with Julie and Erik from Stoney Indian pass. Saw two grizzlies running around on the summit. My favorite summit view. (So far)
Climbed with my wife from Stoney Indian Lake. Didn't see one other person all day. Beautiful blue skies. Amazing views during entire climb. Came face to face with unhappy goat just below the notch. One of my greatest memories.
Climbed with the my co-writers of Climb Glacier National Park, John VanArendonk and Scott Burry. John's son Ben (aka montanarendonk) was also along. Great day, horrible bushwhack to and from Camp Creek. Not a pleasant route from the hiking trail to the valley below the waterfalls. Summitted in high wind, 2 bears reported on summit (we did not see them), incredible views, great experience over all. Descend to Goathaunt to catch the 8:05 pm boat to Waterton.
griz on top BOTH times
Beautiful area, great views. Hiked in to Stoney Indian lake and then up through Stoney Indian Pass. A long, long, long ledge walk over to Cleveland. Saw a friendly goat near the summit. Fresh bear tracks in the snow.
2005 with Ron, Steve, Stephen and Jodi via Stoney Indian Pass
2002 with John, April, Bruce, Rhonda, Ronnie, Dennis and Jim via Stoney Indian Pass
1986 with Bill via West Face
1977 with Bill via Stoney Indian Pass
Took the boat across Waterton lakes, camped in a concrete shelter, with the BATS! the next morn. we hiked up the trail, found the north ridge. We then bushwacked up to 7000' cut over to the west face, and climbed some easy 5th class to the top.
Climbed twice via stoney indian. Great route. 3 Griz on summit.
I'm reconstructing the date a little bit. Know it was early to mid-August 1998. Climbed with Beth, Lori, some guy from Oklahoma and maybe someone else. Need to go back and look at the Photos. We got a undesignated permit for one night. Came in from Waterton and did a sick bushwack to the base of the peak from the Westside. Climbed the next day and took too long. I remember kicking a rock on Lori's head and swear to this day if I would've called rock, it would have hit her in the face. Stayed another night at the undesignated site. Came out the next day and eventually had the "chat" in Rocky's office. We received a round of applause from the tourists on the Waterton ferry (who were seated a generous distance away from us). Smooth climb overall, great views especially into the hole in the wall area.
3rd attempt. Fun, cold day in the mountains.
Brutal bush wacking (don't wear shorts), once above tree line it is a great climb. Saw a griz on the summit. Terrific view- thanks Sarah!
Climbed with Vern Ingraham via Belly River with base camp at Lake Mokowanis
