Mount Stimson is a dominant monster of a mountain, perhaps the hardest major summit in the contiguous United States to climb form the standpoint of remoteness, effort, and non-technical challenge. It is the second highest peak in Glacier National Park, and the routes to the summit are generally Class 3 or 4.

The Stimson-Pinchot massif is cut off from the main Continental Divide by the deep valleys of Nyack and Coal Creeks, giving it a huge base-to-summit rise on all sides and no easy ridge access.


Mount Stimson rises to a point in this view from Triple Divide Peak. Lower Mount Pinchot is to the left (1994-07-26).
