North America, United States, Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park, The Cathedral Group, Various Ascents

The Cathedral Group, Various Ascents. The north face of the Middle Teton was the scene of some new route activity in early August. Buffalo Gals (III 5.10), an excellent four-pitch crack climb on good rock, was climbed by Ron Johnson and Renny Jackson. Just left of this route the Dew Drop Inn (III 5.10) was discovered by Eric Gabriel and Andy Byerly. Both climbs are located just east of the regular North Ridge route. On Mt. Owen, Alex Lowe soloed Jennifer’s Way (IV 5.10a), a three-pitch variation at the start of the Serendipity Arête on Mt. Owen. After reaching the summit of Owen he then continued up the North Ridge/Direct North Face finish on the Grand Teton to get home.
