Ascent Trip Report

After tagging the first two peaks along the Mount Glory ridge, I ventured back further in search of the feature called Moby Dick. This was the most interesting feature of the three as it had some rock and views of the Tetons and my feet were spared any more of that horrible steep and lose mess that you have to hike up from the Teton Pass parking area. I returned the way I came getting in a total of 2,300 feet of gain in only 4 miles with about 3 hours total at or above 10,000 feet.
