Summit Mountain in the Beartooths

Has anyone ever tried climbing Summit Mountain (11,704') in the Beartooths? I'm looking to get into the Beartooths a few times this summer and from the map that peak looks like it would be a great view and potentially a great climb.

My main concern is whether it is actually climbable without ropes, having never even set eyes on it. It certainly doesn't look too steep but you never know. Having climbed Granite I know ...

Solar Eclipse Over Under

With Monday's total eclipse passing directly over the tetons and winds, what's the over under on accidental deaths on Monday? I suspect that the tetons will be reasonably controlled by the nps, but in the winds (specifically Gannett, Fremont, and most Titcomb peaks) to be completely overrun. My guess is that someone falls off the snowbridge on Gannett, gets swallowed up by the glacier, and that someone stumbles over the NE face of Fremont. Hope ...

Glacier National Park/Nyack Coal Creek Loop

Hi, looking in mid September to head to glacier to do the Nyack Coal Creek Loop. Limited information out there on this route so was looking to see if anyone has experience doing this. From what I've read the loop seems very demanding, overgrown but it takes you into some awesome remote backcountry off the beaten path. I understand it's a walk in permit. You think we would have any problems getting one? Also the ...

Gannett Peak - Wells Creek Cleft Beta

I have a small group approaching Gannett via either Tourist Creek or Wells Creek at the beginning of September and am wondering if anybody can describe the crux of the Cleft in the Wells Creek approach in greater detail, specifically the option of crossing the creek. It has been a hot year, so I'm anticipating that the water may be low in the creek that late in the summer and that the Cleft may be ...

Grand Teton this weekend?

The weather in Colorado looks pretty iffy this weekend, but I noticed that it is predicted to be perfect in the Tetons with sunny skies. It's short notice, but does anyone want a go at the Grand Teton?

Taking the family hiking

My son is playing in a hockey tournament in Las Vegas in early July (yeah I know, we're crazy) and on our way home (Manitoba) we are thinking of camping in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and would like to do some hiking. My younger son (6) is a pretty decent hiker for his age and could manage 12 or so kilometres on day hikes in the Canadian Rockies last summer (some days ...
