Ascent Trip Report

Pilgrim mountain stands in Grand Teton National Park near Colter Bay. It's visible to the north of the main road as you approach Colter Bay Lodge, sort of. It's a fairly low forested hill covered in sage and pine. It's a total bushwhack. No trail, no nothin'. Just find your way to the top.

It's one of those peaks that could be easily overlooked, and I would probably overlook it today if I were traveling there for the first time, but being young and moronic in 1991, I decided that I should tackle it. Not that I have any regrets, far from it. It's just not a classic peakbagger peak, and that makes it cool. I'm certain that very few people have ever gone up there. Was it worth it? Hell yes! Were there good views? Sure. Would I do it again? Maybe, but probably not.
