Teanaway and Iron
Super fun scramble, I loved it! Best views of the south face of Stuart I've ever seen, probably best view of Ingalls too. Trip report here.
Scrambled this with Jason. I didn't know it had a name until now. Jason's hat blew off and went down the cliff opposite the side we came up. We called it "Lostcap Mountain" at the time.
Bagged this after Iron. I'm not so sure about the "standard route" mentioned in the description on the main page. From the saddle between Iron and Teanaway, head north and up a very obvious bootpath that traverses and ascends the northeast gully. The bootpath is obvious and it's cairned. It looks like it won't go; trust me, the route is there. This route is STEEP and LOOSE and the penalty for a mis-step in some areas will be some pretty major injuries, if not more. With that said, it's not difficult; just keep your feet underneath you. The views of Stuart were jaw dropping.
Got back from the climb and found out Princess Diana had been killed.
Fun and easy scramble from the saddle between Iron Pk. Some descriptions say to drop into a gully around 6250 but we found it was nicer to just stay on the ridge the whole way. Mountain biked up Beverly and down Iron Pk trail, fun.
Headed out for a west side hike, but it was pouring rain so we just kept driving east. Headed up the river road and into the sunshine...
Hot summer day. We climbed up from the saddle between Teanaway and Bills Peak. There were a couple class 3 moves but mostly class 2 over some looser scree. GREAT VIEWS of Stuart!
This was an unplanned summit with a challenging route that was fun.
Lots of snow, friend and I summited and cought up with my wife and sister in law just as they summited Iron. Pics HERE
Bryan, Dane, and I scrambled up Teanaway Peak and then finished off the day with Iron Peak. It seems that Teanaway Peak must have one of the closest and best views of Stuart and the Enchantments.
Took trail #1399 up to the saddle between Iron and Teanaway, hoping to summit Iron Peak. Of course we had little info with us and assumed the higher peak would be Iron Peak, so we scrambled up to the north (Teanaway). Went above the gully to one fairly exposed move, but the rest of the scramble was fairly straight forward. Very nice views of Stuart!
Traversed over from the Iron-Teanaway saddle. Rather than crossing the lower and lesser-angled snow field then up, we climbed the ridge to the left of the little stream then up steep snow. Not too bad but the slope to the north of the stream/snow field looked easier.
