Grand Tour baby!  Sucess!

If I had recommend one hike to do in GNP it would be this or Iceberg Notch. Great stuff right in the heart of the park. Doing this mountain is a great reminder how amazing and magical the goat trails are in Glacier.

Quick, early AM hike  Sucess!

I had a limited amount of time and started hiking 1/2 hour before the sunrise. Reached the summit in 2 hours via the south slopes scramble. This was a fun scramble! Highly recommended. I was above the wildfire which had the east side of the going-to-the-sun road closed. There was smoke around Logan Pass but the high peaks were clear.

Pretty Thrilling  Sucess!

A little white knuckles for an old coot like me, but an amazing summit. Too bad forest fires obscured views. On the way, saw a herd of 12 male Bighorn Sheep and a very, very rare sighting of a Wolverine.

SW Ridge  Sucess!

Arguably the best bang-for-your-buck climb I've found in the park. It's an easy couple hours to the top, and the views are top-notch before you even leave the parking lot. Minimal exposure, enjoyable scrambling.

Reynolds Mtn  Sucess!

Climbed this mountain several times. One of those ones that ya just gotta show friends the top of the world view from up there. Watched the sunset from up there once and came back in the dark. An amazing experience.

October  Sucess!

After getting weathered out on Mount Brown, 200' from the summit, I had to find a mountain in Glacier to get on top of. Reynolds was a perfect introduction, as many folks will confirm. The day was cloudy, 55 degrees, with no wind (even on top!). Climbing the standard route was fun, especially after the 8 or so foot direct climb to gain the cliff section. After taking the obligatory summit photos and a quick nap (momentarily forgetting where I was upon waking up), I scree-surfed down to the saddle. I'm truly in love with Glacier National Park, if I wasn't already!

so much bang for your buck!  Sucess!

I read that Reynolds was a good starter mountain for Glacier. I kept a swift pace (but no jogging) to try to beat the clouds. I was amazed when I made it from parking lot to summit in 90 minutes. Such an amazing summit for so little work! The occasional cairns made route-finding pretty straightforward.

A Glacier Classic  Sucess!

With Maddie and her 60 year old dad, Harlan. We all did Piegan and Pollock the day before, and he climbed Grinnell solo the next day! Took the Grand Tour Route. The north face is truly an experience! Fun scree run down.

SW Talus in the Clouds  Sucess!

All the parameters of this mountain are moderate, which made it an extremely fun climb. Short, quick, and entertaining. We were in the clouds the entire day and there was 2-3 inches of snow near the top which made route finding a little difficult, but the route is HEAVILY cairned.

The one thing I would add to the route description is, as soon you round the southwest ridge to the southwest face you will see a cairn at the base of a chute. If you climb up through the chute, it will point you directly at the location to climb the lower cliffs on the mountain to get up to the talus slope.

Saw 6 mountain goats on the hiker's trail.

Nice hike. Met a goat on the summit. Walked right passed us.

Reynolds  Sucess!

I did this in August of 2011 and Hidden Lake was still partly frozen. Serious one of my favorite views in Glacier

Easy Scramblr  Sucess!

Did Reynolds with Dragons Tail. Great day with even better views. Getting down Reynolds was a blast. The scree is perfect for scree running and we got down for the "crux" in 8 minutes

busy mountain  Sucess!

Climbed the southwest talus slope with a party totaling four on a spectacular July day. Spotted 16 elk in west Twin Lake in the basin far to the south, which was unexpected and very thrilling. Fun route, with an exposed class III/IV move that requires careful maneuvering. Ran into 10+ people on the way down, which made for a frustrating descent. Be aware of rockfall danger on the route - chances are there will be other folks out on the mountain.
