Cody Peak ascent.

Jason Smith

Description

Disembark Jackson Hole tram and traverse high across Rendezvous Bowl to the high backcountry gate. You'll probably see an obvious traverse track - follow that high right heading toward the rocky low northeast ridge of Cody that marks far looker's right boundary of the classic Pucker Face.

Hiike / scramble up a few hundred feet to gain the top of this short, rocky ridge. Expect a few exposed 4th class moves. Then trend south, hiking on mellow terrain over Pucker Face. From here, pick you delight...or your poison as you'll.

Cody Peak is the ultimate alpine sidecountry theater. Almost all of lines up here are classics. Options ranging from the moderate No Shadows to ridiculous, seldom repeated lines. As the weather pops blue after a storm, expect a smoke show by the locals visible from the Tram Dock.
