a reprise of our 3 earlier great visits to Grand Teton National Park
Grand Teton National Park has lots of scope for day and overnight trips ranging from sightseeing & photo sessions through hikes, scrambles, sport climbing & mountaineering.
We again intend to stay at the American Alpine Club's Climber's Ranch where we (ACC) have reciprocal hut privileges. The Ranch has sleeping (huts), cooking (bbq outdoors), showers, laundry and library facilities. As in the past we’ll probably be at the Climbers Ranch for 6 nights (Sun-Fri).
Saturday…Leave Vancouver early (5 am) overnight somewhere in Idaho.
Sunday…. Arrive at Jackson Hole about 4 pm Buy supplies proceed to AAC Climbers Ranch for dinner.
The following possible itinerary would provide a good chance of summiting "The Grand" if that's on your bucket list....Lots of other options are possible...
Monday morning hike to campsite on Mt Buck...& overnight @ about 10,000 (to acclimatize).
Tuesday...climb Mt Buck...(scramble. crampons, rope, ice axe helmet). Overnight @ Climbers Ranch,
Wednesday...visit Jackson Hole...get supplies...tourist stuff...overnight Climbers Ranch.
Thursday...hike to Grand Teton Lower Saddle (6-8 hrs) for ascent of Grand Teton. Overnight Lower Saddle.
Friday...5 am start. Climb (low 5th) Grand Teton via Owen Spalding or Exum Ridge routes....overnight Climbers Ranch.
Saturday...depart Grand Teton Park...visit Yellowstone Park....overnight...somewhere in Montana (…soon with that dental floss tycoon).
Sunday...balance of ride home if not there already.
