Wyoming Mountain Climbing
If you follow us on FaceBook, you know, I spent 6 weeks guiding in the Grand Tetons and Wind River Range. Working with our friends at Jackson Hole Mountain Guides, I was able to have a number of successful significant ascents in the Teton Range, and some big adventures in the Wind River Range.
I’m already looking forward to climbing with you next summer. The 3-4 day ascent of the Grand Teton is pretty civilized. Ascents of the Grand’s classic routes like the Exum Ridge II-IV 5.5-5.7, Pownall-Gilkey III 5.8, Direct Petzoldt Ridge III 5.7, North Ridge IV 5.8, East Ridge III 5.7. Don’t forget the East Face of Teewinot, Symetry Spire, Guides Wall, the East Ridge of Buck Mountain, the CMC Route on Moran, and many more. Gannet Peak should also be on your radar as well, as is a trip into the Cirque of the Towers.
Let these Photos whet your appetite.
Moving onto larger objectives is physically and mentally demanding. Prepare here, then go send.

Dates for 2016 will come and go. If you are interested, we should talk soon to begin planning. Space in high camp becomes limited fast! If you need a training plan that is legit, and will work, Mountain Athlete can write one for you.
Our late summer and fall rock season is underway, so get onboard for the best time of year to climb in the North East.
