Right above one of the more popular destinations in the Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park, Iceberg Peak looks down upon the gorgeous Iceberg Lake. There are no trails to the top, but you have to walk on one for a bit before the climb.
Getting to Iceberg Peak means that you’ll be taking off from the Highline Trail between the Ahern Drift and Ahern Pass. How you get to that section varies, but the quickest way to get there is from the Loop. From the Loop, up to Granite Park Chalet, then north along the Highline, up to the peak and back down is about 17 miles and 6,000+ vertical which can be made easier by camping at Granite Park Chalet or its campground.
It’s a big day and it was done with Blake Passmore of Climb Glacier National Park as he is working on his third book on climbing peaks within the park. Lot of fun, lot of work and super rewarding. For more information, check out his book when it comes out as well as the J. Gordon Edwards, “A Climber’s Guide to Glacier National Park”.
