The Beast of Two Med  Sucess!

Summer 2012

Climbed with a big Many Glacier group (Colin, Josh, Maria, Cory and his gf) from Dawson Pass both ways. Looooong day, but it was an amazing ridge walk. Views from the pass to the summit were incredible (glaciers and lakes galore). Plus, one more Grizzly run in near the summit!

South Face  Sucess!

August 2010

This has got to be the simplest route up this mountain right?. A great climb, beautiful views. I was surprised by how easy it was. Climbed with Ely and Nate, two friends from the Many Glacier Hotel.

Rising Wolf  Sucess!

My hiking partner didn't show up that morning so I hiked solo up from Dawson Pass. 3/4 of the way to the summit I sat down to look back to see if maybe he just came late and was trailing me. That's when I saw a large grizzly about 150' below me powerfully flipping large boulders looking for something to munch and moving in my direction. Immediately I was on high alert and headed toward the summit a little more briskly, constantly scanning behind and all around. Just before cresting the summit something large moved toward me. It was Rod. Unbeknown to me he had come up the South face and beat me to the top. With a new sense of calm we proceeded on to summit Flinch. The grizzly was not seen again.

south face variation  Sucess!

Very interesting, enjoyable climb. Hiked for about 2 miles along the north shore of Two Medicine Lake and headed up the massive stream bed that drains the large snowfield beneath Rising Wolf's summit. After reviewing FlatheadNative's route in detail, it is clear that my partner and I ascended an entirely different drainage. Encountered similar terrain to the described route - some bush climbing and lots of class III cliff bands with varying levels of exposure. Ran into a young grizzly bear on the summit; fortunately, the little guy passed around us and ambled down towards the north to forage for moths. Traversed to Dawson Pass and walked up Mount Helen to make for an awesome day in Two Medicine.

Via Dawson Pass  Sucess!

Climbed solo in early summer.
Young Man Lake was quite the sight from the ridge less than half thawed from winter still full of huge ice bergs.

Rainy, whiteout day

Did not get the same view St Grizzly did. Looked a lot like the view from Great Northern, Robson, Athabasca and a host of other whiteout trips.

South Face + Traverse  Sucess!

Did this as a Rocky Mountaineer's trip. Two of us ascended the south face, then scrambled along ridge to summit. Then headed west and climbed Flinsch Peak- meeting another member. Completed the day by hiking up to Mt. Helen and viewing Upper Two Med,, before taking trail back to camp. Ran into Pat Caffrey and son climbing Flinsch as I descended. left a can of Pepper spray on ridge heading up Mt. Helen. Great loop!
