Mount Gould is located about 3 miles north of Logan Pass in Glacier National Park. It is the highest point along the Garden Wall, which rises above the Going to the Sun Highway on the west side. The broad west face has a surprisingly easy route - if care and patience are exercised. The northwest ridge is somewhat more difficult, and extremely difficult routes exist on the northeast ridge and the shear east face.
