Teewinot Climb (09/07/13)

My brother Matt, Steven and I decided to climb Teewinot (A "Teton Cathedral Peak" in Grand Teton National Park) as a warmup for Jackson Hole Bible College's backpacking trip that we would lead the next week. It was certainly a warmup, and much more! A great decision to whip us into shape.

We started quite early, and it took us about 10 hours total from the trail parking lot and back. We only got lost a couple times, and went the wrong way a few more times... but that only meant harder climbing! Here's some video I took along the hike with my GoPro camera:


And here are my photos from the top:

Another peak to add to the hiking adventures!

God bless!
