S.W. arete  Sucess!

gorgeous rock and an excellent climb. rated 5.8, more like 5.7. simul climbed most of it to beat a storm, then had to descend 300 ft and wait to see if it was gonna lightning. wasted 1 hour, but decided to go for it, since it was lookn a little better. about 3/4 false summits, requiring raps and down climbs.

SW Couloir  Sucess!

Scouting and warm-up climb for the Grand the next day. From my home in North Carolina to the summit of the Middle Teton in about 24 hours!

SW Couloir/West Ridge  Sucess!

Starting from the Meadows I climbed to the col and up into the beginning of the SW Couloir. By keeping left at or above the height of the Middle Teton (12500 ft) one can (as I did) scramble over fairly solid ledges to to the crest of the West Ridge and follow that right and summitward. I traversed right again just below the summit, but this was probably not necessary. I recommend this variation as an enjoyable way to avoid the the steepest, narrowest part of the gully, which can be hazardous when other climbers are around. There are lot of class 4 variations here, so you can be creative but not terrified.

SW Couloir  Sucess!

A repeat of a 1977 solo trip, this time with a teenage daughter. If somebody ever put together a book of "50 Classic Scrambles," this would have to be a contender. Beautiful rock and a gorgeous summit.

SW Couloir  Sucess!

My brother and I got turned back on the Koven two days before so it was nice to make it up something. I went solo and didn't see anyone the whole day above the meadows. The snow was nice and hard in the morning all the way up the couloir. Awesome Views!!

Middle Teton Glacier  Sucess!

Great steep snow route that takes you to the Southeast couloir and tops out at the notch between the north and south summits. Easy rock to the true summit.

SW Couloir  Sucess!

Did this 3 times last summer. My first big mountain, definitely not my last. The first time I puked the whole way up, but summitted anyway! Good walk-up route, but have moved on to bigger and better things.

First Real Mountain  Sucess!

This was my first real mountain climb. I did it in one day, but took enough provisions for three because I thought I might get lost. My pack was so heavy!!!

Southwest Couloir Climb  Sucess!

A fantastic one day trip to one of the most beautiful locations in the Tetons. Unfortunatly I summited alone as ice about 300 feet from the top turned around my other group members. Incredible views though!

Great day on a great mountain  Sucess!

We started out of the trail about 8 and made it to the summit by 2 and spent nearly an hour relaxing and enjoying the view and beautiful day. It was a great day on a great mountain.

Route Climbed: Southwest Couloir Date Climbed: August 11, 1991  Sucess!

With my friend Karl Lainhart. We camped with our wives, Vonda and Tracie (thanks girls!) just above the Meadows at the beginning of the South Fork of Garnet Canyon. While the girls waited at camp, we summited the next day and returned to the Climber's Ranch. It's a long deslolate way to the saddle between the Middle Teton and the South Teton!
