Tried this peak three times. I finally climbed it via the east ridge. super fun climbing with a ton of exposure. we got off route on decent and rappeled the west chiminy and had to back track for trecking poles and a backpack. 10 hours round trip but an awesome day. some of the pitches are 5.6+ 5.7 but a small rack should should suffice. we took a set of bd cams yellow through purple and a half set of nuts and it seemed to work out well. great climb!
A mighty fine little jaunt up the East Couloir. Those that aren't used to this kind of hard scrambling will probably want a rope to get down. A nice point in a portion of the range where a lot of people may not have visited.
Up East Ridge, Down West Chimney
My first (completed) summit in the Tetons. Did the East Ridge(I think is the name), about 5 pitches. Fantastic exposure on a couple of pitches. The views of Owen are spectacular and the amazing fall colors don't hurt one bit!
I always loved the little summit block of Cube Point. To sit up there and gaze at the scenery is lots of fun. The east ridge is great and even just the scramble route to the top is fun.
W Jenny Lk trail was closed due to a bear with a carcass so we bushwacked straight up from string lake TH. Fun class 4 summit ridge. Great views of cathedral group. Nice medium sized day after summitting Rockchuck the day before.
Summer of '06, I think. Way shorter and easier than we'd thought, but still a really fun half-day out. Made the mistake of pointing the formation out to an excitable tourist on the boat, and he started yelling "they make summit! They make summit!", thoroughly embarrassing us.
Beautiful 1/2 day in the Tetons with great views.
Climbed this one with SP user Andinistaloco as part of a 4 day trip to the Tetons in July, 2006. This was a nice warmup climb and pretty fun in its own right.
Fun climb with a 15-year-old daughter. Airy and spectacular on the first pitch.
With DB in July 2009. Very fun, though regrettably short. Nice finish on the summit block.
