Ascent Trip Report

Drove out the night before on a whim. TH at 3am...woke up at 815am and on the trail by 830. South fork, Face Trail, by the bathroom...not on the topo we used. This is the shorter approach; North Trail adds about 4-5 miles round trip. Really steep in the beginning and led to high alpine plateaus. Ascent time was 1:53 minutes, just going at a good clip. Didn't even have an energy drink! Enjoyed the stunning summit views for nearly a solid hour (Death Canyon Shelf is awesome, especially if you did it the night before), then we jogged down and made it in about an hour. Dunked in Teton Creek a few times and it felt GREAT. Went to Driggs and annihilated Tony's all you can eat buffet. $7.99 for pizza, soup, a good salad bar and awesome homemade cinnamon rolls. Definitely go here; great people and fantastic food. Made it to work by 5pm and didn't even have to speed on the 90 minute drive home.
