      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

mid/late June-Winds or Tetons

Recommended Posts

I'm heading to Jackson for a wedding and then have a 3-4 days in Jackson to climb. My goal is to climb a peak or two with my gf. I heard there was reasonable snowpack this year and that it's likely that the Grand (Upper Exum is our choice route) will have too much snow on it to climb easily. (Don't want to force any mixed terrain).


Alternatively, a quick trip into the Winds (Cirque of the Towers) for a route or two also seems possible, but I've never been in there and not sure if snowpack is typically less/more/same as Tetons.


Any thoughts/advice would be most appreciated.

When are you going? I know Jackson had a big snow year. My guess is that there is probably even more snow in the cirque. Your approach might even be longer down there than normal. If I were you I'd call the Jenny Lake ranger station just before going and see what they say about the upper exum. They have the most up to date conditions from people who have actually been on the mountain and are extremely helpful. You could try some lower elevation stuff like Symmetry Spire as well.
