A sweet climb up the ledges to an awesome plateau of stunted trees and then up to the top. Sick views of the Grand from the summit.

Always a good time in the Tetons. Very heavy snow still. The otherwise class 4 route had some spice to it, including a short pitch of 60-degree snow that I wasn't expecting. A classic summit in an awesome, alpine setting.

We did this as an acclimatization peak for the Grand, which worked out quite well.

Climbed with Mary from a camp in the Meadows of Garnett Canyon. Excellent climbing, very sustained, with many good moves. It started to sprinkle a bit on the 4th pitch, which was a bit unnerving, but things cleared just as we finished up the 3rd class ridge to the end of the difficulties. The descent down the SW couloir was loose and steep.

Soloed the East Ridge and descended Lake Ledges. Very nice climbing; great summit views. Disappointing only if you were thinking you could continue up the Grand, as I'm sure may have been thought in the earliest forrays of the peaks. Also did Irene's Arete sometime in the mid-90's.

First time ever climbing in the Tetons. My roommate was going to snowboard down the Spoon. Got seperated, ended up at the base of the Grand. Good learning experience. The begins of the Hit or Miss Crew.

Climbed up the Spoon Couloir and down the Southwest Ridge. The lake ledges seemed to be buried in snow and wet. Great snow conditions up high.

I wished I had brought an ax for the couloir, I would have gladly carried the two pounds instead of staring at the ugly run out, the pointy rocks at the bottom will stop any other unsurefooted minimalists. Be sure to leave early, the static electricity of mid afternoon was a bit too much for me.

Even though Disappointment Peak is lower than all of the mountains surrounding it, you get an outstanding view of the high peaks with the Grand being right in front of you. The exposure down the west face is incredible. It gets less traffic than the other mountains too.

Lots of snow that year and as said before the view of the east face of the GT is great. I prefered the Red Sentinel between us and the GT. Rapelled down some of the steps and managed to loose a couple of tent stakes intended for a carabiner break bar. Did the Dufler- not looking forward to the Dufler again..

Massive snow left in late june.

Made this climb from our camp at the Caves on a "rest" day between climbing the Grand and the Middle. Offered some great scrambling and superb views from the summit of the Grand and surrounding spires.
