Nice work on this Bob. This seems like a cool side trip for those who do need to escape for a brief interlude of climbing/scrambling.
Thanks. I hope this page will help someone in exactly the way it's intended. Maybe one day when you're out of kitchen passes, you can talk your wife into this one and "win" that way!
You are right; thanks for pointing that out!
And thank you for checking out the page.
on my first trip to Glacier in 2007. that ridge just looked too enticing to not run up it for awhile! i think i made it to a large, steep gap just before Point 8490 and decided to turn back, for i had a friend patiently waiting for me back at the large cairn marking the Siyeh Pass Trail's highpoint. great views down that sheer face to the north!
You didn't have much more to go. Now you have a reason to go back!
