Photos and video from a trip up the CMC route on Moran i did back in August of 2011. We took 2 days to do the climb, and had perfect weather the whole way up. The summit was ridiculously calm. A truly classic Teton experience.

Drizzlepuss-Mount Moran
The crux of the CMC route of Mount Moran-Drizzlepuss YDS:5.5. On the ascent it is a simple rappel, but on the descent from Morans summit, you are forced to climb Drizzlepuss.

JD vs Mt Moran
JD descending the CMC face unroped. It was pretty easy down climbing, although there were a few spots I wished I was rappelling.

Nice Write-up red

The most beautiful route in the tetons, in my humble opinion!

Re: Nice Write-up red

I agree wholeheartedly! Exhausting as hell though in 2 days!
