The centerpiece of the jagged Teton skyline, the aptly named Grand Teton is a classic mountaineering challenge suitable for first-time mountaineers. With the summit at 13,775 feet, ascending the Grand requires a climb of 14 round-trip miles, 14,000 feet of elevation gain and loss, technical 5th class climbing, and plenty of scrambling. It’s also in the heart of gorgeous Grand Teton National Park, where you’ll experience flower-filled meadows, possible bear sightings, and fast-moving weather. You’ll ascend to Corbet’s Base Camp on your way to the summit on this three-night trip. Guided by Jackson Hole Mountain Guides.
