Need to Know

Bring appropriate climbing gear as you see fit. Typically there is technical ice in the Chevy Couloir between the Stettner and Ford Couloir. Crampons are a must. Typically, a few ice screws (conditions dependent) and a few nuts and a small cam or two will get you through. Two 60m ropes are ideal.

Description

The Grand Teton, what everybody looks at in awe, yet few people climb, and fewer ski. A tall, pointy peak with a classic couloir coming of the summit, this is one of the most classic lines in North America. Can be approached from either Taggart Lake if there is snow down to the bottom or via the hiking trail into Garnet Canyon. Slope angles top out near 50.
