I can get a cheap enough flight justify flying in to Jackson Hole.

Definitely looking at an alpine routes.

Either car-car; approach, bivy, climb; or bivy on the route.

Grand or Cathedral Traverse would be high on the list.
High bivy with two routes off Garnet Canyon would also be awesome.
Open to other options.

I can lead everything up to 5.10- or swing leads on harder stuff.

I am okay with beginners as long as you are honest with what you have done. You would definitely need to be leading some form of trad.

I have a "fair" of alpine experience in many differnet locations and conditions (hesitant to say a "lot").

I can fly with all the group gear, if needed.

I would need a pick up (8/5, Friday) and drop off (8/9, Tuesday) at the airport.

I could also likely work many other four night windows in the month of August.

Thanks!

Dave-
I will be visiting my 92-year old mother in Idaho Falls next week - plan to arrive in IF Thursday or Friday I will be in the area until mid-August, when I am booked to help coach a group of disabled veterans from Salt Lake City up the Grand. I'd love to climb with you if we can hook up again. The Grand Traverse is high on my ticklist, but I doubt if I could be fast enough to match your time window. I'd need some acclimatization... Another route at the top of my list is the south buttress of Mount Moran - or the CMC route, but I'd prefer the south buttress. I can supply a tandem inflatable kayak for the lake crossing if you're interested in that.
then, of course, there's tons of day climb possibilities - Symmetry Spire, Storm Point, Irene's Arete, I've always been curious about the dike route on the middle teton...
