Fun scramble  Sucess!

This is a fun scramble up an obviously impressive peak. I camped in the basin below the summit and had an interesting night of storms.

Cold climb with great views  Sucess!

Went up the Southwest Couloir with cold winds whipping in from the west. There was a lot more walking through snow and boulder fields than actual climbing, but the views in Garnet Canyon and at the summit were awesome. This was my first Teton climb. See "Northern Rockies Trip" trip report for details.

Climbed this route several times, and did a few variations. The june 3 trip was very spooky avy danger everywhere, and summit cornice was very exposed. a thanks to Dave MCnally for leading us up.

Awesome Route  Sucess!

A must climb in the Tetons. Great way to spend a long day or, better yet, a two day camping trip from the Meadows.

Good climbs! I love this route  Sucess!

I've done it twice. Both times it was awesome. It's so close to the South Teton, one could make a traverse out of it easily.

Don't recall too difficult of climbing?  Sucess!

Zacha nnd I climbed this after leaving Lupine at 12:30pm! We scrambled the left (west) ridge for some sweet views but descended the gully...seamed casual enough. Got some extra water in the drainage and slid down back to camp i nthe fragile meadows.
