The details: You will cover 14,000 feet of elevation gain/loss with fast paced hiking, scrambling, climbing, down climbing and rappelling in your 12-16 hour effort. Along the way you will encounter breathtaking views, sometimes through the sweat dripping into your eyes. You’ll pass other climbers on the way up, and on the way down, and you’ll stop only for short rests to grab a snack, water, and down some GU. If you are successful you will be rewarded with a summit view that is hard to beat and memories you will never forget.

Still think you’re fit enough? Call us to book your climb and together we will find out! More info.

The fine print: You must qualify for this climb prior to the attempt. We require a preparation day or check-out climb for all Grand Teton climbers.

The Marmot DriClime Windshirt, GU and LaSportiva hat will come in handy on your climb. We also recommend that you use LaSportiva Ganda Guide approach shoes which is the same shoe our guides wear.
