Great String of Peaks  Sucess!

I wouldn't be able to do this peak unless it was comboed with another like Buck and Albright.

30 mile Teton Range loop, including summiting Static Peak  Sucess!

Climbed Static Peak as part of a 30 mile hike from Death Canyon, up Static, down to Alaska Basin, over Hurricane Pass, and out Cascade Canyon, all in one day. It was an amazing trip, and the view from the summit of Static of Buck Mountain and the Cathedral Group was incredible.

Excellent Climb  Sucess!

Made this climb on the second day of a 5 day backpacking trip along the crest. Great views, although smoke obscured quite a bit of the distant scenery. The view of the cathedral, however, was the most stunning I've found along the entire crest. Well worth the climb

quick side hike  Sucess!

Did this as a quick side trip on an overnight loop, Death Canyon to Alaska Basin.

Good Teton Range introduction.  Sucess!

Hiked this one a few times, once with my parents in their 60's; it was all they wanted for a day. Although all on trail, this is a very long approach hike. For those in reasonable shape, if you persevere, you can make it. Buck Mountain is very impressive and massive looking from Static Peak's summit.

Full-on expedition from the west  Sucess!

we climbed it over 4 day expedition with 2 teams of 6 people from the west with a ton of snow and bad weather. the 1st team turned around after a forced bivouac on hurricane pass. We (the 2nd team) went cascade canyon>hurricane pass>alaska basin>static peak>albright peak>stewart draw. summited at sunrise from the west then had a bushwhack of epic proportions down the east face that involved a lot of glissading and roped stream crossings. hella fun!

First hike in the Tetons  Sucess!

Did this as my first peak in the Tetons after moving from Alaska. Wonderful day hike and warm, bluebird weather despite being late October. Great views all around-- can't wait to come back and hike in this area some more!

Traverse from Albright to Buck  Sucess!

An easy hike from the Static Divide, then a hideously loose ridge traverse to the Buck saddle. Trip report.

Static  Sucess!

Death Canyon is really pretty. The trail up to the divide is nice and gradual. From the summit, I enjoyed the views of Buck Mountain and also Rimrock Lake. Hiking to Static Peak is great way to spend a day in the Tetons.

Great end to a huge trip

Part of a big trip. Death Canyon>Death Shelf>Alaska Basin>Static Divide>Static Peak>Death Canyon. Amazing.

awesome trail  Sucess!

I have hiked the trail up Static many times and it is one of the best trail hikes anywhere. The Teton Park trails are some of the best constructed trails I have ever hiked on. The last time I was up there my wife was talking to her family in Colombia from the summit, technology, there was nobody up there to bother. She still says it is one of her favorite hikes.

Static Peak  Sucess!

Did this as a day hike . It is a short distance from Static Peak Divide but from Death Canyon it is a pretty good hike. The weather was nice so the views from the top were great. I’ve been up Death Canyon many times and I always see moose in the area.

Good hike!  Sucess!

Made it up & down just before the storms started coming in.

Great Hike  Sucess!

Great hike for the whole family to the top. Took a 30 minute nap in the sunshine on the summit!

from Alaska Basin  Sucess!

From Death Canyon  Sucess!

The last day of my first real trip to the Tetons (a four day trip). Started pretty late (~11 am), but with good weather it was no problem. Got down by about 6 pm and drove home to Salt Lake City. Saw a moose in Death Canyon, which seems to be a very common thing. Only saw two other groups once I took the fork out of lower Death Canyon.

Fun, long Hike  Sucess!

I am told that some members of our hiking party thought I had intentionally understated the true length of this hike. It is a long hike fron the Death Canyon trail head but the trail is wonderful and nice. We saw a black bear 10 feet off the trail near the Phelps Lake overlook, and also saw a moose and a pika on this climb. We summited just as it started getting thundery.
