Caught the East Face before the snow melted out completely in the notches through cliffbands. Fun, steep, snow climb! Descended via East Face with some fun glissading. Nice solstice hike!

Stewart Draw to East Ridge then face. An enjoyable scramble to the top. Tremendous views North to the main group of Tetons!

very fun route up E Ridge; descended the easier and much-less-exposed E face. jumped in the still-icy TImberline Lake. This whole area was beautiful!

climbed with summitpost member Blazin. Nice route with just a little snow left to enable us to put our crampons on for a bit. A little scrambling and route finding but nothing severe. Great views. The trail was much easier to follow than I would have thought from reading the descriptions.

Climbed up the East Ridge and down the East Face. Exhilarating! Highly recommend the East Ridge route.

Rocky Alps East Ridge / East Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2012

Rocky Alps

What an awesome climb. The smooth slabs near the end of the ridge pushed the limits of what I was comfortable climbing, so we made a gnarly traverse over to the face and continued to the top from there. The heat, along with a little bushwhacking on a side trail at the beginning, made this one of the more tiring hikes I've been on. Surprisingly, Timberline Lake was still completely snow-covered (basin below Buck and Static was very scenic), and there were all sorts of nice wildflowers at various elevations along the way. See "Pushing My Limits" trip report for details.

We made the approach up through Stewart Draw. We took a break at Timberline Lake. I enjoyed the view from the lake with both Static Peak and Buck Mountain as backdrops. We then went up the couloir to the East Ridge Route. We went up the East Ridge for most of the climb, but we decided to exit the route near the end for the East Face. It was a bit of a treacherous traverse. The views from the summit were great.

Tons of snow. East face snowfield was very steep for a descent. Lost my helmet on the way up.

Nice day to be in the Tetons. Came up Stewart Draw to Timberline Lake and then up the East Face of Buck. Not a cloud in the sky and amazing views to be had up top. East Face is a fun class 3.

Climbed the East Ridge with Tim Worth and descended the East Face; would have been a better day if I hadn't lost my wallet on the mountain and had my car die later that evening! This is a great summit - wow!

A fun, quick climb with snow on it, but it would be a nightmare once it melted out. Buck itself is so-so, but the view north is awesome.

wyopeakMikepersonal favorite  Sucess!


Still my favorite Teton. I have been to the true summit 15 times, and I need to get back next year. I still have never skied it, been up there with lots of snow many times. The east ridge is just such a fun time. Teton freakin paradise!

A great climb with lots of snow. We decided to connect to the east ridge to avoid weaving in and out of cliff bands. Also had a very interesting time crossing the drainage in Stewart Draw. A great day though.

A sweet snow climb up from frozen Timberline Lake with awesome skiing on the way down. Definitely one of the better climbs of the season.

Climbed up the East Face this morning and gained the summit with clear skies and great views. One of the harder climbs I've done with all of the snow that is still up there. Glad I had my ice ax with me. Fun glissading on the way down though :)

TripoliRickFirst Climb with Nick  Sucess!


We had climbed a few one pitch things at Patrick's Point when Nick was stationed at Klamath AFS but never anything "Big" so when we met in the Tetons we did Buck for a warm up for the Grand and others. On the way up I dislodged a basket ball size boulder that almost hit Nick...almost.

Dean Halfacre and I started hiking at 2:30AM and summitted at 7:00AM. I remember steep snow climbing during the final stretch.
