Ascent Trip Report

Climbed from west of Headquarters Creek Pass on the last day of a 5 day trip to the North Wall. Ran into some stiff Class III on the west ridge. Incredible views from the summit. Able to see all the way to southern Glacier National Park and the Sweetgrass Hills. Perfect end to my first extended trip into the glorious Bob Marshall Wilderness.
