Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: 2003  Sucess!

This is a great route - nice views of the other Tetons and sweet exposure off the north face. Also, you can make the route as easy (well, down to 3rd class) or as hard as you like - the difficult sections can be avoiced or climbed, depending on your preference. Watch the descent, though - a lot of lines that look good end up nowhere!

Route Climbed: North Face West Coulior (AI2+ 5.7) Date Climbed: July 2004  Sucess!

Left Taggert Lake at 1:30am. Bushwacked up the south fork of avalanche canyon to the base. Route goes up a couple hundred feet of moderate snow to a 45* snow shelf traverse over cliffs. Climbed mixed rock through falling water to get into the coulior. Coulior climbs 1200 feet of snow and ice reaching 60* near the top. At the saddle a steep pitch of 5.7 is needed to make the summit ridge. we summited at noon and descended the east ridge and stewarts draw to another car at the Death Canyon trailhead by 2pm.
