NW couloir  Sucess!

Did this after the Middle. There was not much snow to cross and other than the steep snowfield this is pretty much a walkup this late in the year. Quite a bit easier than the Middle Teton. Right now there is a trench through the snow but if that was not present, I would definitely want an ice axe

South Teton  Sucess!

Started at Lupine Meadows TH and hiked it in conjunction with the Middle Teton - the day after doing the Grand also from the TH. Looks a little steep from the bottom but it's just normal scrambling. ~14,000' elevation gain in two days.

Another Big Boy  Sucess!

All the Teton Cathedral Peaks are just massive and there is no "lessor" peak...even if this one is not as high as the is still quite the peak.

traverse  Sucess!

My favorite way that I summited the South was from Avalanche Canyon. Up from Snowdrift Lake and then back out Garnet Canyon. It was a long day and I had lots of miles in the dark. The ridge up from Avalanche is a long way, 3,000 feet after the long hike to the lake, lots of fun.

Amazing view  Sucess!

Climbed the South Teton right after the Middle Teton. I thought the South was much easier than the Middle. The views to the south and west were simply astounding--the highlight of my trip.

Northwest Coulier  Sucess!

My wife got spooked about 500 yds. from the summit and so she stopped climbing. I continued on solo. I then climbed the Middle Teton right after.

South Teton

I've had two great days climbing the South Teton - NW Couloir and the Cloudveil-S.T. Traverse. Both climbs were great fun!

NW Couloir  Sucess!

From camp at Meadows, climbed as aclimatization hike day before Grand summit. Great views, straight forward route.

NW Couloir  Sucess!

Solo climb from Garnet Canyon/Lupine Meadows. Great peak for a day hike; avoided snow the entire way. Had a VERY close encounter with a black bear munching on huckleberries 10 min into the hike. He couldn't have cared less about my presence; those huckleberries are damn good!

Middle and South Tetons  Sucess!

Great climb up the Middle and South Tetons and back in time for dinner.

Route Climbed: Northwest Couloir  Sucess!

Day hike from the meadows. Ran into a grizzly 10 minutes into the hike at dawn. Wanted the middle but settled for the south without an ax.

South and Middle 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.

NW couloir  Sucess!

Fun snow climb from the saddle. An easy climb and well worth it for the views. Highly recommended!

Northwest Couloir  Sucess!

Solo, tagged the South and the Middle on the same day. Might as well huh? Once you're back in that far, you may as well get both.

South Ridge  Sucess!

From Snowdrift Lake, a traverse up the south side, over to Middle T, and descent via the rotten W side of South Teton.

Ashes?  Sucess!

I traversed from Middle to South. There were definite ashes in the cracks on top of South. Any news about someone's ashes being spread up there? It's not exactly a place there would've been a fire.

Long climb but fun  Sucess!

In a place with so many established routes, I doubt I made a new one. But it wasn't in the book. Awesome views of the range!
