Mount Siyeh, with a height of 10,019 feet (3,054 m), is the fifth tallest and one of six peaks over 10,000 feet (3,048 m) in Glacier National Park, Montana, United States. Mount Siyeh was named after a Blackfeet Indian, Sai-yeh, whose name means "Crazy Dog" or "Mad Wolf."
Mount Siyeh is rather easily accessible from a variety of different routes. It can be ascended via a long scree scramble from the Preston Park area, or from Piegan Pass via Cataract Mountain. The summit can also be reached via a long hiking/mountaineering route dubbed the "Skyline Experience"; this route starts from the Many Glacier Hotel and involves 5.5 miles (9 km) ridge walk and includes the summits of Wynn Mountain (8,404 feet (2,562 m)) and Cracker Peak (9,833 feet (2,997 m)) before reaching the top of Siyeh.
Route Descriptions can be found on Summitpost or in A Climbers Guide to Glacier National Park.
