Backpack, Hike, and Rock Climb

At 13,770 feet above sea level, the Grand Teton towers majestic over Southeastern Idaho and Western Wyoming, making it a life goal of many amateur climbers and outdoor enthusiasts. 

The more popular routes all begin at the Lupine Meadows Trailhead and continue up through Garnet Canyon and The Meadows before splitting North. Most routes require rock climbing equipment and are only for skilled climbers. A guide is highly encouraged on any route. With 3k feet of exposure, falling from multiple segments of the trail would mean certain death.

Trailhead altitude: 6,732 ft

Summit altitude: 13,770 ft

We were blessed with great weather! But I really wish I had brought good gloves and I was really happy for a good coat, it was cold up there in the wind, especially since a morning climb means you're in the shade the whole time (Owen-Spalding route)
