North America, United States, Wyoming—Tetons, Disappointment Peak, West Arête

Disappointment Peak, West Arête. A second new route on the west side of this peak was made on July 17, 1979 by Jim Beyer and JoAnne Urioste. It starts about 100 yards down and south of the col separating the Red Sentinel from Disappointment Peak and stays well to the right of the regular west-face route. It consists of six leads of crack, chimney, and face climbing. The fifth pitch requires F9 overhang climbing to pass a white flake. The final pitch exists onto the upper slopes of the peak from which 200 yards of scrambling lead to the summit. (II, F9.)
