Climbed South Teton in a white out (no threat of tstorms, just heavy clouds). There was also about 3 inches of snow on the route. I wish we would have had views from the top!

Camped with MD at the platforms the day before summiting. A fairly eventful trip. At camp, a marmot ate chunks of my hiking pole (the cork handles).

On the ascent, we narrowly avoided a thunderous rock slide. We only had to cross a very small section (10-20feet) of steep snowfield below the couloir. The crux of the terrain in the couloir felt like class 3. A small plane flew very close to us when we were on the summit.

Afterwards, we packed up camp, hiked out and drove straight to San Francisco.

Ascended Northwest Couloirs. Descended the east ridge to Ice Cream Cone. No summit marker, but a great peak nonetheless.

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2012


I climbed the South Teton solo via the Northwest Couloir back in June. I started from the car at about 2 AM and was on the summit by 9 AM. The clouds had not burned off yet and were streaming off the Cathedral group in beauteful ways. The climb was covered in snow from Garnet Canyon to the top, and the wind was quite intense in some places. I was the only person on the mountain that day which was kinda cool.

Good climb.
Harder travel without snow compared to the Middle last year.

One of the best hikes I've ever done. Perfectly clear blue skies, slight breeze, amazing views, great route. Unforgettable. Enjoyed this one more than the Middle Teton. 14 miles, 11.5 total hours.

Walked up the NW Couloir after climbing the Middle. If you're going to climb one you might as well climb both. Easy day from camp at the Meadows. Hiked out afterwards. Liked this one slightly more than the Middle.

Did this after the Middle. There was not much snow to cross and other than the steep snowfield this is pretty much a walkup this late in the year. Quite a bit easier than the Middle Teton. Right now there is a trench through the snow but if that was not present, I would definitely want an ice axe

Started at Lupine Meadows TH and hiked it in conjunction with the Middle Teton - the day after doing the Grand also from the TH. Looks a little steep from the bottom but it's just normal scrambling. ~14,000' elevation gain in two days.

All the Teton Cathedral Peaks are just massive and there is no "lessor" peak...even if this one is not as high as the others...it is still quite the peak.

My favorite way that I summited the South was from Avalanche Canyon. Up from Snowdrift Lake and then back out Garnet Canyon. It was a long day and I had lots of miles in the dark. The ridge up from Avalanche is a long way, 3,000 feet after the long hike to the lake, lots of fun.

Climbed the South Teton right after the Middle Teton. I thought the South was much easier than the Middle. The views to the south and west were simply astounding--the highlight of my trip.
