North America, United States, Wyoming, Teepe's Pillar, North Face

Teepeā€™s Pillar, North Face. On July 21 Yvon Chouinard and Ken Weeks started this new route from the col between the Pillar and the Grand Teton, descending slightly on a ledge out onto the north face to a difficult overhanging block. To reach the middle of the face, they had to pass a difficult corner and an overhanging jam-crack. The crux of the climb was the section of vertical slabs which was capped by a severe overhang. A small gully which split the upper portion of the face provided two more overhangs. Near the top the route went up an openbook chimney which led slightly to the right.
