is it the angle in the photo - seems pretty steep for a 5.5 route??
It was kinda steep and lots a pitches. I was determinded to get this one after running into real Ice on July 4 on the SW Couloir of the Middle Teton. I felt we should back off around 12,200 for lack of crampons and an imminent slide into Idaho -so we only got Disapointment Peak-axes and boots were enough for it. The pictures I had seen of the Tetons looked like the eastern alps no snow. That June and July they looked like the western alps.
