North America, United States, Wyoming—Tetons, Grand Teton, East Face

Grand Teton, East Face. I made a new climb solo on the east face of the Grand Teton on July 14, 1979. After about 250 feet of scrambling above the top of Teepee’s Glacier to a point about 50 feet left (south) of the prominent wet dihedral, I followed a nebulous line up a blank- looking wall to the left of the two small snowfields, which are left of and below the Otter Body Snowfield. Four pitches of F6 and F7 led to the base of the last pitch on the Underhill Ridge. I followed the east-ridge snowfield to the summit. (III, F7.)
