Relentless glaciers sculpted Mt. Reynold's jagged summit. When several glaciers erode a mountaintop from different sides, a steep mountain peak or horn develops. The result is a glacial horn like the Swiss Matterhorn.

There are glacial horns in many locations throughout the park. But the only sure way to identify a horn is to hike around it or view it from other perspectives. Clements Mountain (behind you and to the right), despite its jagged profile, is not a true glacial horn.
