Traversed to the saddle along ledges below the white part of Ice, then down the east side to Symmetry Couloir. Trip report.
Great introduction to climbing in the tetons. Combine the last 2 pitches for some stellar rock climbing. This one put a perma smile on my face.
Climbed the finger crack with two youngsters I met at the Climber's Ranch. My partner wanted a rest day so it worked out well.
Mike Weber and I did this route using the 5.9 finger crack variation. Easy access for a Teton climb and very good rock.
Excellent route. Superb rock quality. The upper pitches are very exposed with incredible views of Teewinot, Mount Owen, and Grand Teton.
It was fun to do the Symmetry Spire to Ice Point and Storm Point hike in a short day. Lots of awesome scrambling and great views. I did Ice Point a second time on the return, it is just such a fun peak. Storm Point really has a great view of the Grand.
My first into to rock climbing and rapelling before other teton summits
From Ice Point
After an enjoyable scramble up Ice Point's northwest ridge, Walt and I dropped down to the Ice-Storm saddle and wandered up Storm's west face. We just picked a line and went. Class 4 or easy 5.
Fun, easy, short day out with incredible views. We saw 4 bull moose, 3 elk, 2 deer, umm, lots of humans at the boat dock in the afternoon, and that's all.
