      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

[TR] Disappointment Peak, Tetons, Wyoming - East Ridge, grade II, 5.6 7/1/2012

Trip: Disappointment Peak, Tetons, Wyoming - East Ridge, grade II, 5.6

 

Date: 7/1/2012

 

Trip Report:

As a capstone to a beautiful week in the Tetons, Mike Fox joined me on a Tetons moderate classic, the East Ridge of Disappointment Peak. It's dwarfed by the surrounding peaks, but offers a classic climb on great rock from a beautiful campsite at Surprise Lake.

Route Description.

 

 

 

Gear Notes:

One set of cams .75 to 3, one set of nuts. Take at least a 1/2 dozen runners plus a few doubles. Could be done in approach shoes. Lots of water, especially for the 1000' 3rd class scramble to the peak.

 

Approach Notes:

Like almost all Teton climbs, the approach is beautiful and a leg burning cardio workout. In this case, 5 miles and 4000' up to the beginning of the climb. Not so bad by Teton standards.
