Midnight Middle  Sucess!

Started this hike a little after midnight to improve our chances for a storm-free summit. I kinda hit the wall at the saddle, but was able to regroup and pull up the rear...

NW Ice Couloir  Sucess!

Kheegster and I set up base camp at the Lower Saddle with the intention of climbing a couple of routes. The NW Ice couloir was a good route, though the gear was suspect at best in the couloir. We climbed it late in the season, which it both more interesting (more ice, and narrow bands of it in places) and also more dangerous (the rock walls were rotten and the good rock was far too high to reach).

Unfortunately, we really didn't know how to get off the summit back to camp (go down the north ridge!) so we descended toward the South Teton and back down to the Meadows before trudging back to the Lower Saddle for the bivy gear. An epic, long day out.

winter ascent...with a sled?

Garnet Canyon in winter is no place to be with a sled. Suffice it to say, we did not summit. However, we dug some cool snow caves and got a chance to lower our sled on ropes down sections too steep to descend. Good learning experience early in my career.

Fun Hike

I enjoyed the hike up the Middle Teton's Southwest Couloir. I camped near the saddle and was kept awake most of the night by a serious lightning storm -- scary stuff!

Twofer  Sucess!

Climbed the Middle Teton via SW Couloir, then went up the South Teton. Great day, great weather, awesome mountains. Hope to do the Middle again, via either Buckingham or Chouinard Ridge or the Dike Route soon.

Southwest Coulier  Sucess!

I've climbed this twice...once in 2001 and again in 2008. There is an amazing view of Grand Teton from the summit.

conditions are key  Sucess!

Climbed the glacier route. Get good beta on the conditions because if they suck this climb will suck. We got hit by a few we slides and it was pretty scary.

I climbed it for my first time on the 4th of July in the snow! My favorite part was glissading down and caring the american flag with us!

SouthWest Col  Sucess!

First time climbing with an axe and crampons.. Really loved the snow and the descent. Really a fun route for my first time.

I was right on the edge of the mountain, almost got up there, but the snow was to steep and we had no snow-axes, mabye next time.

SW Couloir

Great climb on snow all the way from the mouth of Garnet Canyon. Stopped just under the actual summit because of high winds and about 8 ft of icy rock. Must go back to truly tag...

Not nearly as loose as I had heard and really quite fun. Sweet summit!

the middle  Sucess!

Climbed this peak about 6 times while living in Jackson. One time on my birthday, June 3 with friends. The summit was very corniced, and exposed!

Excellent day. Brought my buddy Dustin up.

SW Couloir  Sucess!

Climbed standard route from Lupine Meadows TH with three college buddies. Set up camp in the meadows before a small storm/light rain hit, but it cleared up before the end of the night. Got the summit via the SW couloir with two of my three friends, the other turning around back for camp somewhere before the saddle. Great trip!
