Description 

An amazing tour of the Teton Range, stretching over four days, 25 different peaks, 65 miles, 78,000 vert gain/loss and encompassing all of the major peaks of the Teton Range. This traverse is really an addition to the Grand Traverse by adding in the southern and northern major peaks in the park into one long adventure.

Mostly fifth class scrambling, but North Ridge of Grand comes in at 5.8 in areas.

Peaks summited in order from North to South:

Day One: Mt. Moran (CMC route), Woodring Peak (SouthEast Ridge), Rockchuck Peak (East Face), Mt. St. John (North Ridge), Symmetry Spire (North Couloir), Ice Point (NW ridge), Storm Point (NW Ridge)

Day Two: Teewinot (East Face), Peak 11.840 (East Ridge), East Prong (East Ridge), Mt. Owen (Koven Route), Grand Teton (North Ridge), Enclosure, Middle Teton (North Ridge)

Day Three: South Teton (NW ridge), Ice Cream Cone (West Ridge), Gilkey Tower West Ridge), Spalding Peak (West Ridge), Cloudveil Peak (West Ridge), Nez Perce (NW couloirs)

Day Four: Wister Peak (NE face), Peak 10,696 , Buck Mountain (East Face), Static Peak, Albright Peak.

Location 

Grand Teton National Park.

Protection 

CMC route is 5.5 for four pitches with big exposure, North Ridge of Grand is around 6 pitches of 5.7-5.8. There is one 5.6 move on North Ridge of Middle Teton and one 5.6 ridge on Ice Cream Cone. One 60 meter rope for Cathedral Traverse. otherwise mostly 5th class scrambling. A minimal rack for the North Ridge of the Grand is recommended, maybe 6 alpine slicks, anchor gear,slim assortment of size .3-1 inch cams. Depending on comfort level, the entire traverse may be done uproped, if comfortable soloing the North Ridge of the Grand.
