Ascent Trip Report

Wasn't planning a hiking day, but the weather was beautiful and the mountains were there.

13:00 - Arrived at the top of the tram after a nice lunch in Teton village. Walked the steps/path up to the summit. 13:07 - Rendezvous summit. Took a few pictures. Unfortunately, Idaho is burning down causing a lot of smoke so the Tetons are barely visible. We make a plan to hike down to a nice ridge and see how far we came make it. We have dinner reservations @5pm in Coulter Bay which is ~1 drive from the base. We keep that in mind.
13:40 - We reach the saddle between Rendezvous and Cody peak. We continue toward Cody peak as there looks to be some nice bouldering on the first knob.
13:55 - We reach the first know and take some more pictures. We have time, so we head toward Cody and see how far we can get. I determine we should turn around in 30 mins.
14:15 - We are almost at the turn around time. We bump into 2 girls hiking down from the summit which we can easily see ahead of us. Then inform us it is only ~10 mins up, and ~5 mins down from the summit. We decide to go for it.
14:22 - We arrive at the summit of Cody Peak. Way cool! Was not expecting to be here today. A nice surprise. We take a couple of pictures and quickly descend back toward the tram.
15:05 - We are back in the saddle.
13:33 - We are back at the top of the tram only to see the doors close in front of us. We just missed that tram. We wait 15 mins for the next tram. We make it to the bottom and drive to Coulter bay for our dinner reservation - on time.
