Descending Cataract Mtn en-route to Pollock and Bi...

Description 

The "Quadra-Fecta" route established by Greg and Idara Aguinaga of Go Wild Adventures - Montana. July 9, 2015. Four peaks in one day. Total elevation change = 10,304 feet. (5127' of ascent and 5177' of descent) Mountains climbed: Piegan (via the SW Slope), Cataract (West Ridge), Pollock (South Face via the "Cleft") & Bishops Cap (Standard Route). This is a long arduous day climbing and traversing in the high mountains of Glacier Park. Beautiful views and fun climbing. Bring plenty of extra water... you'll need it.

Leaving the summit of Cataract Mtn and heading toward Pollock and Bishops Cap. The 4th Mtn of the "Quadra-Fecta" - Bishops Cap can be seen as the highest point on the skyline in the upper left along with the East faces of the Continental Divide.

Location 

The Quadra-Fecta route starts at Logan Pass and follows a goat trail traversing east into Lunch Creek and then ascends the following mountains in order: Piegan, Cataract, Pollock, and Bishops Cap. Descent is via the gully between Pollock and Bishops Cap. (Approx 2,200 feet descent to the Highline Trail)and then returns to the Logan Pass Visitor's Center.

Protection 

This is more of a peak bagging route of 4 separate peaks. Because there are some steep short rock walls to overcome during the ascent of Pollock and Bishops Cap, an optional short rope and light gear can be taken for these few steep sections of 3rd-4th class.
