Thanks to Fred Spicker for adding this peak.
Bearhat Mountain rises majestically above Hidden Lake a short distance from Logan Pass in Glacier National Park. It is an easy one day climb from the pass and as J. Gordon Edwards says in A Climber's Guide to Glacier National Park: "Views from this peak are among the most interesting in the park. In every direction there are jagged walls and pinnacles, splendid cliffs, and densely wooded valleys.
Careful route finding is required to keep the East Face Route a scramble. The highest point is at the southwest end of the mountain, but many climbers choose to stop at the north summit.
Please refer to A Climber's Guide to Glacier National Park by J. Gordon Edwards for information regarding the special dangers of climbing in this area before attempting this peak.
