Route Climbed: North Face III, 5.6 Date Climbed: September 2, 2001
My wife and I spent our first anniversary on Teewinot. The route is not recommended for pure climbing, but the adventurous nature is hard to match. The entire bit across the North Face is loose and scary, with marginal protection in the shattered rock. We spent so much time on the summit collecting ourselves that we descended the East Face in the dark.
Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: July 27, 2003
Climbed to the summit as a simul-solo with David Kozak in 10 hrs car-to-car. Route finding was a bit tricky and we ended up slightly off route on some terrain which was probably 5th class. There were two short sections of very compact snow which were quite tedious but tolerable in approach shoes. The descent was the hardest part since there were sustained sections of exposed class 4 climbing which required careful attention. Very nice summit with great views and a nice photo opportunity on the very sharp summit pinnacle.
