I've climbed Reynolds 4 times to the top, and twice not quite. I have done the north face goat trail traverse, and it's spectacular and scary. Classic mountain.
Most recently August 25, 2013
I got a bit off-route due to thick clouds and fog (ended up ascending the southeast slope), but went back down the southwest slope the right way. Although short, the scrambling at the top was awesome (quite exposed, but still class 3), and the views around Logan Pass were top-notch. See "Northern Rockies Trip" trip report for details.
A couple times in 2001
A very fun climb. Highly recommend this route over the southwest talus route. Much less slog and more fun scrambling.
I did this climb on a calm and perfect day with my wife and her best friend; I was hoping for a little more climbing and exposure, but it is a great summit!
Fun hike from the pass. Trip report
2009 with Bruce and Kathy (North Face Diagonal)
2004 with Ron on the foggy day that saw the passing of J. Gordon Edwards. (North Face Diagonal)
2003 with John (North Face Diagonal)
2001 with GMS (North Face Diagonal)
1977 with Bill (SW Talus)
I wouldn't have suspected that a route this easy exists judging by Mt Reynold's formidable appearance. Thank you Edwards.
Did the grand tour route with three others. The goat trail across the north face was a lot of fun. My friends got a little upset when I made them stop for a photo, saying "It's not too bad if we just keep moving.". I have done Reynolds before many times but this was the first time across the goat trail.
A beautiful but almost trivial route up an awesome peak with a very fun group of folks. Bagged Dragon's Trail afterward.
Climbed with Linda, Nice day.
Took a look at the diagonal...still a few patches of snow that made us think twice about continuing. Instead, went right at the Y and traversed above the standard route (way less scree). Beautiful bluebird day...
Great views. MPrice; I also ran Reynolds a few years back with a Flathead Cross Country star and our time was 61 minutes! Maybe this summer it will go at under an hour.
Was training for a cross country race and wanted to see how fast I could get to the top. I was in good shape back then and was able to run most of the way, even along the north face diagonal ledge. Only had to climb the east face above that and made it in 61 minutes from the visitor center.
Climbed the SW Slopes and loved the spectacular scenery and warm weather the whole way. Best view I've had in the Lower 48.
scrambled up to the peak of this mountain after doing oberlin in the morning. what a wonderful day--scorching hot and clear skies; amazing, endless views in all directions. another peak all to myself. i hope to return someday soon.
i've climbed this mountain at least 6 times...and keep coming back for a reason! this mountain has it all. good exposure, intresting climbing and great positions! also was one of my first mountains in GNP.
Great scrambling, too bad smoke from nearby fires obscured much of the view
This climb was made in honor of my cousin, Randy Turnacliff. Taken from us too soon. You are missed my friend.
We all enjoyed the North face and the incredible drop off. An awesome climb.
Climbed via the southwest ridge route. There is a little decent exposure there but not too bad. Descended via the standard SW Talus Slope Route... a quick scree run down to the saddle.
Good outing. Saw grizzly tracks along the slopes at the base of the mountain.
