North America, United States, Wyoming—Tetons, Shadow Peak, South Face

Shadow Peak, South Face. Seldom climbed even from the usual Garnet Canyon approach, Shadow Peak had never been ascended from Avalanche Canyon until this climb by Ted Vaill and Hank Janes on September 3. A long couloir led to a shallow cave at the base of the southeast face. Three leads of interesting climbing led to some 300 feet of scrambling to the summit block. One final lead up a chockstone-filled chimney took the party to the summit ridge which leads west to the summit.
