East Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the East Ridge. Not very impressed with the climbing except for the last 200 feet which was fantastic. Took a dip in Amphitheater Lake after descending the SE Ridge.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

Last climb of the week. Fun scramble through the chockstones above the lake and on to the summit ridge. We spent a while on this amazing summit just soaking in the views.

Great First Summit in the Cathedral Group  Sucess!

Accidentally went up the much harder North Ridge route. Solid climbing that will test your route finding skills. Would do it again after going down the straightforward Lake Ledges.

Crazy weather

Despite forecast for clear skies and slight chance of rain in the afternoon, we were hit by multiple storms rolling through in the morning and crazy wind and rain/hail on the summit. Hike was much shorter than expected. Overall nice pre-work hike!

Lake ledges route  Sucess!

Great solo day in the mighty Tetons. When I was there, lots of snow above the lake which I think made for an easier climb. Just kick steps and ice axe were all that were needed.

Irene's Arete

Did not summit, as Irene's Arete tops out pretty far down from the summit. Didn't really feel like slogging up to bag it.

Fun solo climb  Sucess!

Climbed the southeast ridge route of Dissapointment Peak by myself last June. There was tons of snow. I had some sketchy fun ascending the headwall between ampitheatre lake and the upper plateau of the peak. The summit had an incredible view of the east face of the Grand.

Did not disappoint  Sucess!

Fun route with some good exposure. My husband was nice enough to give me the cleanest and final pitch :). Very classic 5.7

East Ridge  Sucess!

Camped out at Surprise Lake, climbed east ridge and hiked to the top. Amazing views the entire way! Great climb to share with my wife, peak did NOT live up to its name.

Fun! Fun! Fun!  Sucess!

We climbed via the east face/ridge. the first six pitches where sustained 5.6 with some 5.7 for good measure,there was a bit of dirt with ball baring scree at one point and an open book with dead pine needles in it to give it some spice and the final two pitches had a ton of exposure. the last part of the climb was 800-1000' of large tallus leading to a clean but exposed summit. I will do this route again.Classic!

Aptly Named

A morning thunderstorm chased us down the slopes around 10am. Tragically, two nearby climbers died, one on Middle and the other on the Grand. It was a little stressful when lightning started hitting Surprise Lake hundreds of feet below us as we scrambled for safety.

Took a jaunt to the summit before descending Spoon Couloir after an awesome day on Irene's. Nice views. Trip report

Lightning and Disappointment

A freak storm came out of nowhere around 10am. Two climbers lost their lives that day while attempting Middle and Grand Teton. We had to descend just short of the summit as lightning struck the mountainsides around us.
