Fairshare Tower 

Fairshare Tower is a ridge which divides the Teepe Glacier from Glacier Gulch. The summit is 11,500 ft+. You can see it from Garnet Canyon Moraine, but it is best viewed from the Teepe Glacier. If you look East from the Jackson Hole Mt Guide camp at Teepe Col, you cannot miss it. The JHM guides use it for rock climbing. If you visit this area, please respect the guides and their clients, as well as the Guides' need to use this formation for instruction. DO NOT ENTER THEIR HUT OR DISTURB THEIR EQUIPMENT.
If you climb on Fairshare before or after the guiding season, you will have little company. Rock quality on this formation is better than average, but rockfall is an issue especially in the gullies.

Getting There 

Park at Lupine Meadow. Hike Garnet Canyon Trail to Moraine Camping Zone. Ascend to Teepe Col.
Good campsites found here. Cross the Teepe Glacier to Fairshare.

Crawl Along the Watchtower 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c PG13  Wyoming : Grand Teton National Park : Fairshare Tower
This route traverses the ridge crest of Fairshare tower. We climbed it from South to North. The route stays either on the ridge crest itself, or just East of the ridge for most of the route. Most of the climbing is not difficult at all; and rock quality is generally good. Start at the the toe of the South Ridge. Look for a rappel anchor on the West aspect of the ridge, above a dihedral. Climb this dihedral, and belay at the anchor. Continue up several easy to moderate pitches, with dif...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
