Picked a perfect bluebird *almost* fall day to climb this peak. It was my first Teton climb in which we had the peak all to ourselves. Routefinding wasn't as bad as expected with the amount of cairns. Last bit of exposed 4th was spicy, rest of route went easily.
This one capped off a one-day traverse from the Grand through the Middle, to the South and then a traverse of the South ridge line. Amazing day in the mountains.
Photo taken on an off route ascent myself and my freind Austin did of the Northwest face/ couloirs of Nez Perce. We got off route and ended up ascending a satelite peak of Nez Perce. Luckily i brought my rope and trad gear along and we were able to traverse across to the main route safely. We got hit by storms just as we reached the base of the peak.

Somehwere on the west ridge... though at points I must've been on the standard route. Lots of fun scrambling and a 4th-easy 5th class moves. This was a blast.
Fantastic route. Views from the top are stunning.
8/13/11 via Hour Glass Coulior. nice snow climb to the ridge then had a great time getting beta shots for future climbs plus a great 4th/low 5thish climb to the top =)!!!!! wonderful half day climb from the meadows
8/17/12 Traverse from Cloudveil to Nez Perce to end THE GRAND TRAVERSE!!!!!!!!!
Easy snow climb until I came out onto the face, then a bit of an epic, as I crossed the west summit and got caught in a blizzard on the true summit. Trip report
climbed the northwest couloir w/heather after turning away from the 5.6 north face route due to possible time/weather constraints. today the two of us discovered that while teton rock climbs are glorious, the scree/approaches are MISERABLE!....oh well
anyways, we had an enjoyable day finding our way around this unknown, to us, mountain. we had quite the adventure ranging from tons of 4th/low-5th scrambling to topping out on the wrong summit! the final section(5.0) to the true summit was a blast and the views of the three tetons from the summit more than made up for our efforts!
Were heading for the North Face, but with a late start decided to do the class 4 gully instead. Climbed with Jamie. This would be a great snow climb, but is pretty nasty and loose without, of course, it is a gully. The descent was just as loose. Great day none-the-less.
An incredible peak, as good as it gets. I have only gone up the NW ledges a few times and I would like to do the South ridge. A fine Teton summit, not too big with lots of exposure on the way up. You feel very satisfied after a climb of Old Nezzie as I like to call this magnificent peak.
Left the Meadows at 5:00AM and did some belaying on the way up and rappelling on the way down.
Scrambled up one afternoon from the AAC climbers ranch
Climbed this route car-to-car with Patrick O'Donnell of Boulder. We met at the Climbers' Ranch earlier in the week and decided to try to get this route in before Patrick drove back to Boulder. We left from Lupine Meadows at 4AM and got to the start of the climbing at around 8AM. The approach up the couloir from Garnett Canyon was easier than expected and we didn't have any difficulties finding our way to the climb. We did the route in about 7 pitches with some simul-climbing. The descent down the NW Couloir was pretty crappy. We were back at the car at 3:30PM. Very nice climb on one of the less-frequented Teton peaks.
Beautiful day in the Tetons on fantastic rock. We approached and descended via Avalanche Canyon (not recommended for either) in one long day. Love those summit views!
Approch from the Platforms. Great climb. Two long rapels on the way up. New snow on the summit made the descent on the other side difficult (slick) so we rapelled several pitches to get out of the snow and ice.
Excellent route with good rock. Beautiful view from the summit, but the descent was not so fun... loose scree, rotten snow in the 80 degree couloir. It was worth it though.
This climb is 5 pitches long with some delicate 5.10a moves near the beginning. It heads up the north face of a subsidiary peak of Nez Perce. We finished on the east peak. The descent is via a steep couloir on the south side.
Great climb! Got a little off route after the first few pitches but it was still fun. Long one day climb from trailhead. Left the car at 4:30am and it took about 11 hours. Good rappel and exposed down climbing on descent.
Beautiful moderate climb. Climbed it with bthere on a Saturday then woke up on Sunday and climbed Open Book (very nice 5.9) which was minutes from our campsite at the Platforms. Highly recommend this combination for a full weekend.
Fun climb. We did it fairly early in the season but found it to be mostly a rock climb.
