Teewinot Notch sunrise
We wanted to be at the start of the North Ridge of the Grand Teton in 6 1/2 hours from this point.
The Grand, Middle and South Tetons align from this vantage. The terrain of your near future laid out before you.
Walking and scrambling and climbing and marching and scrambling and rapping.
Climbing the East Prong
Teewinot's Crooked Thumb protrudes into smokey air behind.
The Coven Col
A long snow bridge extended the length of saddle between the East Prong and the lower flank of Owen. A fine line to traverse above exceptional exposure.
Slipping into darkness at the Gunsight Notch.
Back into sunshine
After climbing the North Ridge in the breezy shade of midday, Nancy celebrates our home stretch in warm sun.
