Gannett and Grand Teton

Postby WyomingSummits » Sun Dec 15, 2013 4:04 am

I'm planning 2014's climbs and want to try to hit Gannett and The Grand on back to back weekendd late jult and early August. Anyone game for either one around that time? I'm gonna try to get an early backcountry permit for the Grand here soon. Let me know if this interests you.

I'd be down for Gannett but am wanting to approach via Tourist Creek and do the west route. You only have a weekend? There's a bunch of other 13ers nearby I also want to hit up

I might be able to squeeze a week in....depends on timing on other things going on. I know Mount Solitude is right on that approach. Brutal approach but the best way to hit the west face. Were you wanting to do the class 4 ridge or a tech route on the west face?

Probably would rather do the technical west face route. And you are correct about Solitude...I also want to hit Koven, Bastion, and a couple others I forget the names to. A week would be more than enough I think.

One of the 5.3-5.6 ribs on the west face? Maybe the southern most one? Sounds like the rock quality on it is the best. The only other routes I see are Class4-low 5 gullies, ridges, and couloirs...and a IV 5.9 A3 route.

I'd be interested in these as long as the planned routes are less than ~5.9.

I can only lead 5.8 solid alpine trad anyway. 5.9 alpine trad is the goal for this summer. Also, I would be interested in a trip to the Cirque if that interests anyone. There is a chance I will have most of the summer off.

I'm planning for a Cirque trip as well. Went last year.....place is incredible. I'd really like to do the Class4/5 Overhanging tower route as well as Wolf's Head and Pingora. I got sick on Wolf's Head and had to bail.....not sure what it was but I don't want it again. ;)

I'll get a couple of dates together in a week or so to see if they would work. If you guys have any dates in mind, let me know.

Looks like Bastion, Three Cirque Needle, Desolation, Gannett, and a few others are all accessible along that track. Bastion, 3 cirque, and Desolation are all part of the same ridge so they'd be fairly simple to hit up.....maybe a couple in a day.

Koven and Rampart are a couple of others as well....although Rampart may be a bit out of the way.
