Rocky Alps

Went up the Southwest Couloir with cold winds whipping in from the west. There was a lot more walking through snow and boulder fields than actual climbing, but the views in Garnet Canyon and at the summit were awesome. This was my first Teton climb. See "Northern Rockies Trip" trip report for details.

Can't even count how many times I have climbed this peak. It's a classic and always a fun day.

I would rate this as a classic. Fun scrambling with generally firm rock. Spectacular views. Still a little snow but nothing to require and ax or crampons.

Started at Lupine Meadows TH and hiked it in conjunction with the South Teton - the day after doing the Grand also from the TH. Climbed a (unnamed?) S/SE couloir or chute - mostly Class 3-4 with a few class 5 moves and an interesting Belly Crawl like traverse. ~14,000' elevation gain in two days.

Started 4am. Last 1,400 feet of snow was ice and rock hard. Had a blast cramponing up and down SW couloir. Summit views are amazing. Was up there with 3 JL climbing rangers. 11 hrs car to car. This mountain is spectacular!

Summited with my buddy Jonas. We had a wonderful camp at the Meadows the night before with nobody around. We tried a shortcut up towards the SW Couloir and I mysteriously loss my crampon. After the retrieval, the clouds and wind set in. Once in the clouds, an eerie calm set over the snow-filled couloir. Cool feeling on the final summit ridge. Returned to camp and slept for ages.

Started this hike a little after midnight to improve our chances for a storm-free summit. I kinda hit the wall at the saddle, but was able to regroup and pull up the rear...

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2008


Kheegster and I set up base camp at the Lower Saddle with the intention of climbing a couple of routes. The NW Ice couloir was a good route, though the gear was suspect at best in the couloir. We climbed it late in the season, which it both more interesting (more ice, and narrow bands of it in places) and also more dangerous (the rock walls were rotten and the good rock was far too high to reach).

Unfortunately, we really didn't know how to get off the summit back to camp (go down the north ridge!) so we descended toward the South Teton and back down to the Meadows before trudging back to the Lower Saddle for the bivy gear. An epic, long day out.

Darren9winter ascent...with a sled?


Garnet Canyon in winter is no place to be with a sled. Suffice it to say, we did not summit. However, we dug some cool snow caves and got a chance to lower our sled on ropes down sections too steep to descend. Good learning experience early in my career.

I enjoyed the hike up the Middle Teton's Southwest Couloir. I camped near the saddle and was kept awake most of the night by a serious lightning storm -- scary stuff!

Climbed the Middle Teton via SW Couloir, then went up the South Teton. Great day, great weather, awesome mountains. Hope to do the Middle again, via either Buckingham or Chouinard Ridge or the Dike Route soon.

I've climbed this twice...once in 2001 and again in 2008. There is an amazing view of Grand Teton from the summit.

Climbed the glacier route. Get good beta on the conditions because if they suck this climb will suck. We got hit by a few we slides and it was pretty scary.

I climbed it for my first time on the 4th of July in the snow! My favorite part was glissading down and caring the american flag with us!
