Teton County Highpoint Trip Report

Grand Teton

I climbed with my brothers Carl, John, and Eric, and three of Eric's children. It was still winter in the Tetons. Snow as far as you can see - difficult to stay off the snow and ice. We climbed the Owens-Spaulding route and we overnighted Monday at the Moraine.

This is quite a mountain, regardless of the route you take. I was amazed at the amount of exposure to extreme vertical drops. Of the peaks I've climbed in the west, this is certainly at or near the top of the list.
