Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Mike Harris campground on the Idaho side of Teton Pass and followed a pack trail from the old USGS topo map, then a quick bushwhack to the true summit. Approximately 4.5 miles each way. Hit one fork and went right when I should have gone left, accidental 15 min detour. A few steep portions but very easy overall, jogged a decent amount. Some cool distant views of the tetons, but overall a pretty uneventful summit.

Left work 5:00
Hit trail 6:00
Summit 7:50
Back at car 8:55
