DescriptionOf the two summits, the north is slightly higher. Viewed from the west one can see a conspicuous pinnacle north of this summit.
The route ascends the gully/chimney leading to the platform separating this tower from the main peak. From the top of the chimney scramble right (south) to the blocky summit rocks and climb steep cracks on the east side of the formation. The actual top is a few steps further south.
Descend via downclimbing the route, or a set up a couple of short rappels.
The summit provides unique views of the range and the route is a quick, enjoyable, alpine experience on an important Teton peak.
