“I’d better do this before I get too old!” That was my logic several months ago when I decided to commit to doing the Cathedral Traverse. The Cathedral Traverse is a climb of the three peaks that make up the Cathedral Group in the Tetons. The route starts by climbing up the East Face of Teewinot and climbing across a ridge to the top of Mt Owen. You then cross the ridge between Mt Owen and the Grand Teton. Finally you are placed to climb the Grand Teton by one of the North Ridge routes. The descent takes you off the south side of the Grand and back to your starting point through Garnet Canyon.
Last summer about this time Jessi and I climbed the Grand Teton. I’ve been promising to post the photos since then. It’s about time!
Since my last post, and with much help from friends and family, I managed to accomplish my skiing goals, do a little climbing, do the Imogene Pass Run with my sister Tana, and ride the White Rim. The Imogene Pass run was exhausting, and the White Rim trip was spectacular. They both deserve a posts of their own. I’ll do that later. This is an update on skiing and climbing. Thanks to everyone that helped me make this happen.
In August 2012 Charlie, Twila, Chris, and I took a trip to Chicago Basin to camp for a few days and climb Sunlight Peak, Windom Peak, and Mount Eolus. The weather was great, the climbs were exhilarating, and the mountain goats curious. I posted a few photos in my Picasa gallery.
