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.

Glorius  Sucess!

Yes a glorius adventure and a super easy approach make this one of Glacier's most popular. It is despite the angle in pictures, a walk, or practically a swim up loose scree, but not a climb, unless you deviate from the standard route. Can be climbed with impressive but wearying Dragon's Tail. Like all Glacier Peaks, you will feel so far above the rest of the world you never want to come down, and the shots of Bearhat across Hidden Lake will make you drool to climb Bearhat. Of the two, Bearhat is harder, more fun, and offers better photography, though both are great. But snapping Reynolds and that incredible horn shape from Bearhat trumps anything Reynolds can offer. They are not doable in the same day.

Reynolds  Sucess!

Also a couple other times this summer. The view is one of the best bangs for your buck.

Reynolds  Sucess!

Wonderful day of swirling clouds. Spent two hours on the summit spinning, watching the views change.

Screelicious  Sucess!

Third time to the top for me, and fifth trip overall. Did the standard route and had forgotten how terrible the scree is going up to the summit cliffs. I'd rather risk the North Face traverse again.... Great summit views with intermittent wisps of cloud blowing up from the St. Mary valley. No better place to be!

Second Time  Sucess!

With Noelle, a former GNP backcountry Ranger. This was her first peak bagged in the park!

Great day for climbing Reynolds  Sucess!

The Grand Tour Route with GMS. The north face ledge was fun. Next time the north face and east couloir.

Ouch  Sucess!

Climbed solo, was late and partner left ahead of me. Met up with him at summit. Knocked helmet off summit, took a 500ft fall and only got scratches. Climbed shortly after 3 surgeries so it was a little overwhelming but a good first post-op outing.

Misty summit  Sucess!

Great climb with clouds topping out just above the summit. Couldn't see a thing but still got a sunburn.

August 2007  Sucess!

Another fun one. I got some great pictures at the top of me with really shaggy hair because it was my first summer living in Glacier and I couldn't figure out where to get a haircut. I was also really fat.

North Face & East Couloir  Sucess!

My first Glacier peak, and I met Dan who asked me if I was comfortable with Class IV prior to heading up the gully. We made it but was that quite the rush going up the east couloir.

Very windy summit!  Sucess!

Not sure which route we used, went up to the saddle, around the back side to the wide gully and around to the talus slope on the other side. Climbed with Smiley, Mark, Beth and Marlene. Easy climb but lots of loose scree.

South Slope  Sucess!

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.

South Slopes Route  Sucess!

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.
