Continue along the trail past the waterfalls viewpoint. With a bit of route finding, you should be able to discern a trail that leads off to the right. This walk-up route will get you beyond the impressive looking cliff wall that guards the hanging basin above the falls. Alternatively there is a couloir that can be climbed from the path that saves you a few minutes. We followed this trail to the edge of the ridge whereupon our group decided to break into a two groups (there were multiple people who had hiked the ridge before; some who preferred to continue further down the path and to gain the ridge by hiking up loose scree/rubble; others preferred to scramble immediately up the edge of the ridge where there were some solid rock outcroppings that one could ascend... the scramble was a steeper way up, but in my opinion, an easier option).
There were some impressive drop-offs and some very interesting looking rock arches at the top of the ridge. Unfortuately, the ridgetop was enshrouded in clouds and fog, so we did not proceed up any higher.
From the ridge, it is supposedly an easy hike to the top of the mountain (see Â‘A climber's guide to Glacier National Park' b J. Gordon Edwards).
