Ascent Trip Report

Ascended to Iceberg Notch, then traversed beneath large cliffs until finding easier terrain to summit Iceberg Peak. Spellbinding views from the top, arguably some of the finest I have seen in all of Glacier NP. Continued along Continental Divide towards "South Iceberg Peak". We opted to skip the summit and instead followed some exciting game trails that eventually led to safer terrain to the south. Hiked to a beautiful shallow tarn in North Swiftcurrent Glacier Basin, and followed the thrilling game trail that connects from there to the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail. The goat trail was indescribably awesome. Great weather, great day, great company!
