guerinakCrazy weather


Despite forecast for clear skies and slight chance of rain in the afternoon, we were hit by multiple storms rolling through in the morning and crazy wind and rain/hail on the summit. Hike was much shorter than expected. Overall nice pre-work hike!

dino61111Lake ledges route  Sucess!


Great solo day in the mighty Tetons. When I was there, lots of snow above the lake which I think made for an easier climb. Just kick steps and ice axe were all that were needed.

Did not summit, as Irene's Arete tops out pretty far down from the summit. Didn't really feel like slogging up to bag it.

PanamaRedFun solo climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2013


Climbed the southeast ridge route of Dissapointment Peak by myself last June. There was tons of snow. I had some sketchy fun ascending the headwall between ampitheatre lake and the upper plateau of the peak. The summit had an incredible view of the east face of the Grand.

Fun route with some good exposure. My husband was nice enough to give me the cleanest and final pitch :). Very classic 5.7

Camped out at Surprise Lake, climbed east ridge and hiked to the top. Amazing views the entire way! Great climb to share with my wife, peak did NOT live up to its name.

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2012


We climbed via the east face/ridge. the first six pitches where sustained 5.6 with some 5.7 for good measure,there was a bit of dirt with ball baring scree at one point and an open book with dead pine needles in it to give it some spice and the final two pitches had a ton of exposure. the last part of the climb was 800-1000' of large tallus leading to a clean but exposed summit. I will do this route again.Classic!

Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2010


A morning thunderstorm chased us down the slopes around 10am. Tragically, two nearby climbers died, one on Middle and the other on the Grand. It was a little stressful when lightning started hitting Surprise Lake hundreds of feet below us as we scrambled for safety.

Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2010


A freak storm came out of nowhere around 10am. Two climbers lost their lives that day while attempting Middle and Grand Teton. We had to descend just short of the summit as lightning struck the mountainsides around us.

sprossedaSpoon Couloir up, Ledges down  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2010


Me and buddy took spoon couloir up. He soloed it and belayed me 3 pitches in top half. Easy to anchor on edges of couloir. This route is awesome. Fun class 3 scramble on summit. Amazing views. Did 2 easy rappels down lake ledges. This mountain is loads of fun with long but easy trail approach. Love it!

Climbed three times, twice on the East Ridge and once on the SW Ridge. Always a great time. One of my favorite peaks in the park.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2006


July 14, 2006: Climbed the East Ridge with andinistaloco as part of a 4-5 day climbing trip. Definitely the best route we did, and still one of my favorite low-commitment alpine rock routes in the Tetons. The last two pitches are really great....the slog to the summit from there, not so much.

July 17, 2010: Climbed the West Buttress (5.6, ~5 pitches) with Dunsum. This was plan B, but it worked out pretty well and was a decent climb. Has some loose rock, but is an interesting, seldom-done climb. You top out about 50 yards from the summit.
