Ascent Trip Report

Goal was to tag both Tarzan Butte and Teanaway Butte but the trip was taking much longer than expected due to conditions so we called it at the junction to Teanaway Butte and started our descent to Jungle Creek Road and out.

Luckily we had great views the entire trip! A very pleasant winter day with no wind.

Nearly 10 hours car to car (started at ~8:30am and returned by ~6:15pm). ~3.25 hours to Tarzan Butte and another ~2.5 to the point where we called it (47.3303, -120.9302, ~.5 miles from Teanaway Butte summit - so close, yet so far!).
