Glacier: Reynolds Mountain

August 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Hey everyone!

After a successful summit of Mount Siyeh, I still had a few more days in Glacier. The weather wasn't really cooperating, so I was mostly road based taking photos of the clouds.

After a couple days of rain, the smoke cleared out and the evening's sunset looked to be promising. I called a few friends and asked if they wanted to climb Reynolds with me for sunset. We left from Logan Pass around 5pm once most of the cars cleared out. We slowly made our way up the glacial horn, and had another goat sighing.

The climb is mostly a trail, until the last part where you hike up a big scree field until you reach a set up benches. There is one 10-foot class-3 pitch that's easy to climb, but it's in a no-fall zone. 

After that it's an easy walk to the summit, which is a rounded ridge with a big flat top.

The views from the top are stunning, especially for sunset.

We cracked our beers and hung out and waited for the sunset. The light kept getting better and better.


We didn't feel like hiking down in the dark in case something happened, so we started down after the light was mostly faded. 

The next day, a big lightning storm sparked the Sprague Fire and smoke started to pick back up. I figured that was a sign that it was time to leave. Just had to hit my final favorite spot before making the long drive home. Overall great trip in the old hood!
