great weather until we were nearly down to the canoe. One of the rappels is too long for a 60 m rope and you had to slide down a slick slab to the ledge below, then we got the rope hung up and had to climb back up to get it.

Date Climbed: May 25, 2014


super memorial day weekend climb with mike and brian!

bushwhack to the base of the route wasn't pleasant at 1:30am, but we flew up the skillet once the angle kicked up. topped out at 7:35am and enjoyed the orange glow on the grand teton and solitude until other people started arriving 15-20 minutes later.

the descent of the handle was a little rough until the 45-50 degree slopes relented, then i was able to glissade 2500-3000' vertical back to the woods. done before 10:30am, then canoed back to signal mountain lodge.

all in all an excellent climb, not to be missed!

Climbed and skied Skillet Glacier with Brian and Jamie, bushwhack approach is annoying and time consuming, but once we hit snow we quickly made progress. Summit around 8am and it was already getting really soft, be prepared to get this line EARLY, direct east sun right from sunrise!

Fought big surf on the canoe trip up. Were all alone on the mountain. Not a cloud in the sky. What a fantastic trip.

One of the most stunning peaks I’ve climbed. The Hanging glacier and the East and West Horns are amazing! Did the climb in 3 days making it very enjoyable with a swim at the end to Boulder Island. Highly recommended!!!

Really great fun climb and beautiful views all the way. We were the only team on the mountain. Glad we borrowed a canoe because I think the bushwhack would be nasty.

I have climbed the CMC route twice, in September 2011, and August 2013. I ended up free soloing it the second time around. It is one of the most fun routes in the tetons!

Long day on the CMC route. Beautiful mountain and I especially enjoyed the unique canoe approach to the base of the climb.

Climbed CMC in a day. Bivied in the canoe in Leigh Lake, then got a 3 am start. The hardest part of the day was climbing back up Drizzlepuss...scary!

Got off route and ended up climbing the West Horn, but that just made it all the more memorable. The climb up and out over Drizzlepuss was a blast! More fun than climbing Moran.

Two days after soloing the CMC (kayak to summit in 4 hours) I came back with Sarah and we did the SBR in the same amount of time. I thought the crux was pretty hard, more 11+ than 11-. It's a very good route, though it doesn't make my personal top ten. The rap line is pretty involved and be prepared to leave tat if a rat's nest of rotting cord bothers you. A really good topo for the rap line can be found in the Teton select book.

Climbed the CMC route twice in the last 2 years. In 2008 while camped at the cmc camp, the worst thunderstorm I have ever been in was raging most of the night. Intense to say the least.
We lucked out the next day as it was clear sky and sunshine. In 2009 perfect weather. Both years we were the only party on the route.
Awesome mountian.

One of the best things about this summit was the combined hike, canoe, hike, mountaineer, reverse all mix.

Climbed this one with Andinistaloco a few years back. We canoed across in the afternoon and camped at the lake rather than slogging up to the high camp with heavy packs on our weak, recently injured ankles. The next day was both awesome (a great route!) and unpleasant (a long day of 6,000+ feet up and down that was hell by the end). We had a couple victory shots, I took a dip in the lake and we passed out and canoed back the next morning.

One of the best climbs out there, especially for such easy climbing.

I loved this route! Easy climbing with stunning scenery, in fact the best scenery I've experienced in this range so far. I really liked the canoe aspect as well, I nice twist to the typically approach slog on post peaks.
