My friend and I work in Yellowstone National Park and are intermediate climbers/mountaineers. We have been climbing together in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem for 2 months.
Our summit list this summer includes: Electric Peak, Emigrant Peak, Middle Teton, and Granite Peak.
We are looking for a strong lead climber familiar with the Teton Range who is willing to lead us up the Grand via the Owen Spalding route.
My friend and I both have harnesses, belay devices, and helmets, and are excellent at belaying and rappelling. I have a 60m 9.1mm Mammut Eternity dry rope (brand new) that can be used, but am lacking protection and the skills to use them confidently.
We want to climb the Grand Aug 10-11. If interested and have a good alpine rack and solid leading/trad skills, let me know. We are willing to pay $200 for your services.
