Middle and South Tetons  Sucess!

Set up camp in the South Fork, then climbed the Middle and South Tetons together the next day (standard routes on both). Early morning thunder and lightning both days, but it cleared up quickly. Great mountains and views of the rest of the range.

Behind Brits with a 300' rope  Sucess!

This was our last climb in the Tetons on this trip. We followed behind a couple from England who were double ropping on a 300' 9mm. We got to the summit just as they were preparing to leave. Since they were able to do 150' rappels and we were limited to 80 footers, we never saw them again.Double roping has it advantages.

Better late than never!  Sucess!

Spent a windy night in south fork of garnet canyon then summited via SW couloir with JHMG. Excellent first Alpine experience. The credit to my success goes to the Lord Jesus Christ,through who's strength we can do all things!

South West Couloir

My first summit in the Tetons. A summer wouldn't be complete without a trip to WY!

Beautiful climb! First Teton summit. Windy night at the Saddle, perfect late summer day to do the climb.

Easy Summit  Sucess!

I camped just below Middle and South, and hit the summit of Middle just after daybreak. Couldn't be better.

Route Climbed: Lupine Meadows Trailhead.  Sucess!

Climbed with Kelly before continuing on our way to Yellowstone National Park.

Nice scrambling near the summit with excellent views of the valley and the Idaho State side.

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.

Sweet Views!  Sucess!

Another beautiful day in the Tetons! The SW couloir was fun, and the view of the Grand was amazing!

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!!

Awesome!  Sucess!

We almost flaked! Glad we didn't. Great day with my brother Jake. It tied up some unfinished business.
