RIMcMTWildflower Garden  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2016


There is a barricade at the trailhead but I could find no trail marker. The branch to Mt Wright (Trail #160) is also unmarked just a broken post with an illegible sign ? This is a steep trail but the summit views made it worthwhile.

MTfred19Trail up south ridge from W. Fork Teton River  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2013


Had the trail to myself this day and no wonder - whoever said that this could be a pretty hot hike was not kidding! Very, very hot - I would definitely suggest doing it on a cooler day because it is like being in a reflector oven! An excellent, fun, and easy trail, though, so don't pass it up. Very nice summit area despite the electrical facility (it may be ugly and annoying, but it makes a great windbreak!).

Hauled my son up on my back to the saddle just below timberline, and after my wife caught up, I went on to the summit and the lesser-visited south summit as well. It was a bit hazy, but it was nice being back where my adventures in this range began.

Tremendous summit views. It was blowing and storming sideways at the top and we had to crouch behind the microwave box for shelter. Saw a rainbow well below us to the north. Great day.

I seem to climb Mount Wright in the shoulder seasons. Not sure why.

Outstanding climb. It happens to be quite strenuous however, for you gain 3000 feet of elevation in a little under three miles. Purest water sources I have seen, as Mount Wright's waters help make up the mouth of the Teton River. Much of it burned last year however, and the area is still in recovery. Trail has not been maintained very much this year.

Date Climbed: Jan 2, 2007
skiid from the ski resort to the trailhead and up to the turn off to the summit trail. left our skis and snowshoed(breaking trail)to the S.E. face and took this direct, then left shoes and step kicked only a 100 ft. before we realized we wouldn't be able to climb fast enough over the wind swept talus with our ski boots on. opted to descend from this point, about 800ft from summit.
