We had (litterally) stellar conditions: Mild temps, Light wind, and a quarter moon. We were treated to a lightning show some 40 miles to the south, but not a worry for us. Give it up for these two hardy mountaineers topping out on the Grand Teton yesterday!
Paul finishes the Belly Roll, as the shadow of the Grand pops out over Idaho
Mark at the crux of the Owen Chimney, with verglas showing up on all the best footholds (Doh!)
Mark, thankful for Paul's belay, at the top of the Sargent Chimney
On the way down, I caught sight of some Teton Edelweiss (actually Alpine Phlox) hiding between a skunky clump of Sky Pilot and the Black Dike itself, replete with orange lichen.
