Looking for partner to climb Gannett Peak July 25-31 2015

Hi, I'm looking for a partner/partners to climb Gannett Peak this July via the Glacier Trail, or the Ink Wells Trail short-cut (pay Indian guide $325 per person for transportation).

"The Wall" in Grand Teton NP

Has anyone ever climbed "The Wall" at the head of Avalanche Canyon in the Tetons? I am really intrigued by the possibility of trying to climb it. Looking at Google Earth, there appears to be a use-trail that heads down the backside into Alaska Basin, so I've been thinking it would be sweet to climb The Wall and then hike down the backside. I can't seem to find anyone who has climbed it before, though. ...

June skiing Idaho ?

Hoping there's folks that might have info, experience, links, or suggestions on skiing traverses, basecamps, or couloirs/day trips in June in the White Clouds or Sawtooths. Seems like perhaps most things are melted out summer snowpack (perhaps) by that time. Thanks for any info.

I just checked the snow depth reports and the NOAA extended forecasts so this is the analysis.
Note: I live in Bozeman so this is relevant for Yellowstone, Beartooths and the areas nearby although most of this Northern Rockies area has seen a similar climate.

Many sites had above average snowfall in early January but unseasonably dry and warm temps have brought the snowpack down to around average by Feb. 1. However there has been ...
