Ascent Trip Report

200 feet of gain to the south off of the trail to Amphitheater Lake. Well worth the 5 minute detour; 180 views of Jackson Hole Valley and unobstructed views of the nearby high peaks of the Teton Range. class 2 for the final 50 ft. close to full snow coverage on the trail above 9500, some snow on the north-facing slope below the summit but it was avoidable, and soft enough to kickstep our way straight up anyway.
