South Ridge  Sucess!

Great multi-pitch Teton climb with a short approach. Climbed this one again during a "Women That Rock" climbing clinic in June 2004.

South Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed without aid with Dave Carman as a prelude to a single-day Grand climb starting a few hours later. The crux is tricky with approach shoes. A very fun climb. A bear crossed my path two days later about 200 yards from the boat dock ten feet from me. Great climb!

After summiting the Grand, crossed Jenny's Lake to Baxter's. Chose to scramble up the side instead of climbing. Had lunch 50 meters below the summit in the shade. Great day and good views.

Love the Jenny Lake boat ride as an approach to a climb.

Fun day climb, but beware of the loose rock. Have seen a couple of BIG rocks fall and hit folks at the base.

Many lines to the summit pitch. The closer you stay to the ridge the better the route.

An awesome way to spend part of a day in the Tetons! I have met many good folks on this route.

Route Climbed: South Ridge/Face Date Climbed: July 1995  Sucess!

Climbed with old friend Hugh Sakols-Fun route. After leading final pitch to summit and backing up old bolts, a local "guide" came up ahead of his client. He looked at my back-up and scoffed, "those bolts are just fine" and preceded to clip them as his sole anchor. Scary.

Climbed the route with Ella Reid. The opening move of the last pitch to the top is the crux... has the most exposure, too. A fun, quick outing: boat trip across Jenny Lake, short beautiful hike, and the pleasant climb with a great finish. Only downsides: the descent down the westside gully and the route is very popular with the general public & the guiding services (and their clients).

Climbed with David Kozak on my first day in the Tetons as a warm-up. Started on the first boat across Jenny Lake at 8AM and were back at 11AM. We soloed the first two pitches and belayed the rest. David did a nice job leading the crux. Really fun climb - nice and short.
