Took my wife to the top. Her first peak. She's not much of a climber so it was a slow trip up. But she stuck with it. Proud of her.
Awesome views from a little hike and a nice glissade down.
a nice easy morning climb, had the mountain all to myself except for a mountain goat friend descending onto the saddle between oberlin and clements. incredible views; up and down in 2 hours and on to reynolds for the afternoon.
Good view of Mt. Cannon lots of mountain goats. Climbed with Rebelgrizz and Tater.
Oberlin via Clements saddle with a friend and 3 kids. Youngest guy was 4 and he did great...just needed a little help down on the cliffs. Route was well marked and passable. Skirted a small snowfield just below the saddle, otherwise clear. Pollock/Piegan area had a dusting of fresh snow from the night before. Taking the advice of many, did this as my first peak in Glacier...probably do Divide or Reynolds next.
Can't think of a peak anywhere where such little effort is rewarded with such great views.
Solo on my birthday. Great introduction to Glacier, great view.
easy peak, good fun though. there was a little electricity in the air from a passing thunderstorm! usually try not to wear my hair straight up like that!
Fun intro to scrambling in Glacier NP. Lots of smoke from nearby fires the day we went up though
Great climb for my daughters and wife. Fantastic climbs great memories. We had a total of 14 summit in our group.
PROBABLY THE EASIEST CLIMB IN GNP HIKED UP WITH OTHG
8/13/98 CLIMBED ALONG WITH MT CLEMENTS WITH OTHG
AN EXCITING TRIP IS ACROSS THE SADDLE SOUTH OF OBERLIN DOWN INTO BIRD WOMAN CIRQUE AND TRAVERSE THE N FACE NEAR THE LOGAN PASS ELEVATION ALONG THE GOAT TRAILS BACK TO LOGAN PASS
Nice little hike to spend the afternoon. Fun watching all the cars and tourists below you.
Nice hike with my Dad, brother, and sister from Logan Pass visitor center to Clement Saddle, and from there up the ridge to the summit. Made it to the summit in a little over two hours, with tons of breaks for picture taking. Great terrain and great views from the summit. Round-trip time of a little over four hours. I'd definitely recommend the hike if you visit Logan Pass.

Shortest approach climb from Logan Pass. The views are worth the hike especially of the mountains above Hidden Lake and across the valley.
Did a snowclimb to the Clements saddle area then followed occassional cairns to a cliffed out spot. I didn't feel like locating the next cairn so I scrambled up an easy fifth class face onto the summit plateau. On the way down, I took a guess at where the proper route was and ended up in some chimney that ended up being the freakiest downclimb I've ever encountered. It sounds like there is a way up this thing but I probably prefer the crazy scrambling route. Good summit to scope out skiable lines around Logan Pass.
I've climbed this mountain about 3 times, July 20th 2005 is my most recent climb. I climbed it with my grandmother and father. It's a good first-of-the-season climb. The weather was wonderful, and there are great views.
