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.

Spoon Couloir up, Ledges down  Sucess!

Me and buddy took spoon couloir up. He soloed it and belayed me 3 pitches in top half. Easy to anchor on edges of couloir. This route is awesome. Fun class 3 scramble on summit. Amazing views. Did 2 easy rappels down lake ledges. This mountain is loads of fun with long but easy trail approach. Love it!

Great Peak  Sucess!

Climbed three times, twice on the East Ridge and once on the SW Ridge. Always a great time. One of my favorite peaks in the park.

East Ridge  Sucess!

July 14, 2006: Climbed the East Ridge with andinistaloco as part of a 4-5 day climbing trip. Definitely the best route we did, and still one of my favorite low-commitment alpine rock routes in the Tetons. The last two pitches are really great....the slog to the summit from there, not so much.

July 17, 2010: Climbed the West Buttress (5.6, ~5 pitches) with Dunsum. This was plan B, but it worked out pretty well and was a decent climb. Has some loose rock, but is an interesting, seldom-done climb. You top out about 50 yards from the summit.

never disappointing

I like the SE ridge scramble up from Amp Lake, Lake Ledges are also cool. The east ridge is a fun climb. Spent many hours on this fantastic summit just soaking it all in.

Lake Ledges  Sucess!

Final climb of a week long Teton trip. Did anyone see the memorial right below the ledges?

Lake Ledges  Sucess!

I loved this mountain and its summit! Great views from the top and some great glissading down the Spoon Coulier.

Lake Ledges  Sucess!

A sweet climb up the ledges to an awesome plateau of stunted trees and then up to the top. Sick views of the Grand from the summit.

3rd time is a charm  Sucess!

Finally made it to the top of my 1st Teton!!! Turned around twice before because of time and weather...

Lake Ledges  Sucess!

Always a good time in the Tetons. Very heavy snow still. The otherwise class 4 route had some spice to it, including a short pitch of 60-degree snow that I wasn't expecting. A classic summit in an awesome, alpine setting.

Great Warmup  Sucess!

We did this as an acclimatization peak for the Grand, which worked out quite well.

Irene's Arete (5.8)  Sucess!

Climbed with Mary from a camp in the Meadows of Garnett Canyon. Excellent climbing, very sustained, with many good moves. It started to sprinkle a bit on the 4th pitch, which was a bit unnerving, but things cleared just as we finished up the 3rd class ridge to the end of the difficulties. The descent down the SW couloir was loose and steep.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Soloed the East Ridge and descended Lake Ledges. Very nice climbing; great summit views. Disappointing only if you were thinking you could continue up the Grand, as I'm sure may have been thought in the earliest forrays of the peaks. Also did Irene's Arete sometime in the mid-90's.

Irene's and Open Book  Sucess!

On two seperate occasions, of course. Incredible routes, great views. Fun, sustained climbing on excellent rock.

Southwest Couloir

First time ever climbing in the Tetons. My roommate was going to snowboard down the Spoon. Got seperated, ended up at the base of the Grand. Good learning experience. The begins of the Hit or Miss Crew.
