Highlights

  • A classic by any route, the Grand Teton forms the centerpiece of one of the West's most dramatic ranges.
  • 7 miles and 5,000 vertical feet of hiking bring you to the Lower Saddle of the Grand, a breathtaking perch for a campsite, but don't expect much sleep once the evening wind kicks in.
  • The easier routes, including the Owen-Spaulding and the Upper Exum, offer great adventure value for the inexperienced climber to second.
  • The summit offers an exhilarating 360 view; Jackson Hole ski area looks like a molehill from up there.
  • Grand Teton is the highest point in Grand Tetons National Park.
