Ascent Trip Report

I set out from the trailhead at 7:25am with a summit goal for Middle and South Teton. What and epic and beautiful hike this was. Snow started about 1 mile before the saddle and got deeper on the way to Middle Teton summit. I passed all the other parties on the mountain and reached the summit in 4h18m. I hung out on the summit for an hour due to low visibility (i wanted a view) and got to enjoy a cumulative total of 2 minutes of visibility. STUNNING! One of my favorite peaks this year.

I made my way back down to the saddled and went up South Teton next.
