Climbed in a big day as part of a Cloudveil Traverse Variation
Ice Cream Cone (5.6)
Gilkey Tower (5.6 var)
Climbed the east ridge of Cloudveil Dome several years ago with some friends. We didn't need a rope, the climbing was easy if a little exposed in some places. The views of the other Tetons from the summit were amazing!
Climbed via East Ridge with a friend who is new to hiking/climbing. Great first scramble and place to teach her the ropes!
Climbed as part of the Grand Traverse (minus Mt. Owen and Teewinot)
8/17/12 Via West Ridge/Descent East Ridge (Part of Grand Traverse)
From South Teton, on a traverse to Nez Perce. Trip report.
Jonas and I scaled the East Ridge in spring conditions completely with crampons in a failed attempt to do a traverse to South Teton. Most likely went off-route because we hit some hard 5.6ish moves on iced-over slabby rock. We ended up on top of Gilky(sp)Peak and had to rappel of the northwest face, pack up camp and return to the car (19 full hours from beginning to end). It was an amazing alpine adventure.
I did this as part of the cloudveil dome traverse, really fun!
A very fun day in the mountains with a good friend.
Fun climb, excellent weather, new climbing partner, doesn't get much better. Nice and quiet that far off the beaten path.
A helpful hint if you are headed towards Armed Robbery: don't go too far down the red gully. The access to the ledge is near the TOP of the red gully (not as I believed much lower - ended up "stuck" next to Taminah - which I just climbed)
Another new Teton summit that's off the beaten path. This is a fun climb, and I look forward to more on the south face.
