Climb Glacier National Park – Vol. 3

Climb Glacier National Park – Vol. 3
CLIMB GLACIER NATIONAL PARK – Vol. #3


Routes for Beginning and Intermediate Climbers

Volume Three: The Northern Highline, Lake McDonald, and Sperry Glacier Basin

By Blake Passmore

The third in a series of full-color guidebooks for peak-baggers in Glacier National Park, titled “Climb Glacier National Park – Vol. 3,” by mountaineering-photographer Blake Passmore of Kalispell, Montana, has been released. This 176-page softcover guidebook is issued in 6 by 9-inch format and was written specifically for use by beginners and intermediate hikers and climbers.

Volume 3 features routes to many scenic peaks located on the west side of Glacier near Apgar and West Glacier, as well as six peaks that straddle the Continental Divide. Routes to Glacier’s iconic Heaven’s Peak as well as the incredible Iceberg Peak and Edwards Mountain are sure to lure any climber who is looking for a unique experience in Glacier’s rugged terrain. Passmore has also included trail hikes for those who do not want to tackle the challenge of off-trail travel. Four of Glacier’s Lookouts, which are either on top of a mountain or on the route to a mountain summit, are also featured in Volume Three.

The third volume features routes to the following summits: Mount Grinnell, Swiftcurrent Mountain, South Iceberg Peak, Iceberg Peak, Ahern Peak, Heavens Peak, Mount Vaught, Stanton Mountain, Huckleberry Mountain, Apgar Lookout, The Belton Hills, Mount Brown, Edwards Mountain, Gunsight Mountain and Lincoln Peak. Like it predecessors, this volume features over 300 full-color photos, many of which have the red line drawn on the photo to aid climbers in locating a safe way through a particular section of the climb. In addition to the red-line this volume also features panoramic summit shots with peak identification. Volume Three includes all the features of the previous volumes.

Glacier National Park has been called the “Crown of the Continent” with good reason. This area is spectacular and the best way to see it is from the top of the peaks. Mountaineers have been climbing in this area well before the park was established in 1910 and by using “Climb Glacier National Park” aspiring modern-day climbers can also stand on the summits of this Montana “jewel.”

Passmore has a vision to introduce beginners to the incredible experience of seeing Glacier National Park from the summits. He has received numerous comments regarding readers climbing their “first” summit in Glacier. Most of them were thrilled by the experience. Many other readers simply enjoy looking at the photos and vicariously enjoying the climb from the safety of their home. Volumes One and Two are permanent fixtures in the ranger rescue cache at Logan Pass and in the Two Medicine Valley and Passmore hopes they will never need to be used in a rescue.

Passmore, a long-time mountaineer, is a contributor to the world’s most popular mountain climbing website, Summitpost.org. His extensive on-line writing includes mountain descriptions, route guides, trip reports, and articles related to climbing as well as contributions featuring the history of Glacier National Park. Passmore is a native of northwestern Montana; he has a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master’s of Education from Montana State University. When he is not climbing in Glacier National Park he works in health care field in the Flathead Valley.
