Glory Bowl in the morning sun.


The most southerly peak of the Teton Range, Mount Glory rises directly above Teton Pass and is popular both summer and winter. Numberless ski descents are available and the peak sees steady traffic daily through the skiing months. The impressive avalanche path of Glory Bowl, the east facing slope so conspicuous and alluring from Wilson and the valley floor, is one of many winter options.
From the parking area at the top of the Pass the summit is a short hour away, up a scrappy trail leading up the south face, with a few loose pebbly sections. Ski poles help. Excellent views and a sense of being on a true peak make for a worthy, if short, outing.
Climbing Glory is a great way to get in some altitude in 'cheap' kind of way, but when time is short and aspirations point towards the big peaks, here's a chance to get up to 10,000+ quickly. Take some more time and hike north along the ridgecrest -- flowers can be outrageous -- for more time at altitude. It is a splendid little peak that anchors the south end of the range.

Getting There 

Drive to the top of Teton Pass and park. Cross the road to the north and find the obvious trail leaving the road and heading north to the summit. Off you go, have a good hike!

mount glory is a hike not a climb. There IS climbing on the pass but its more so around phillips ridge (teton reef) than mount glory.

One 'climbs' a peak, even if it's not technical. I'm unsure what your criteria for a 'climb' might be, but Glory remains one of the range's salient high points.

Mountain Project is a site for technical climbing routes (rock & ice). Summit Post would be a more appropriate place to post this. (and of course its already there: )

I disagree. There are lots of worthy 'walk-ups' on MP. Along with that, the use of Glory for some altitude conditioning is a well known plus for those visitors with tight timetables.
But that's just me. Of course you're welcome to see it differently.

...oh, that's funny... I'd come to the same conclusion myself! Not a biggie... hope you are enjoying a great summer... it goes too fast is what I know.

Way too fast. It appears to already be fall.

I was actually looking up at glory this morning and there actually seems to be some pretty good looking rock. Any ever made any efforts to climb anything up there. Even if there were just a handful of routes, it would be a decent alternative thats a bit closer to town than some other areas.
