Cathedral Traverse 2014

AUGUST 24, 2014
Continuous fall-like weather has dropped 8 inches of snow at the Lower Saddle and Grand Teton. A full day of solar radiation will be needed to dry all the routes. Chimneys and ledges could remain icy for the remainder of the season.

Still need Ice axe, crampons. Snow still in a few spots. North ridge is dry between storms.


JULY 20, 2014
According to a party that just checked in post-traverse, Teewinot still necessitates crampons and ice axe. The top of Teewinot to the East Prong is snowfree and snow can be avoided getting up onto the Owen Bench. This crew was able to get around to the the top of Owen by traversing a bit south on a snow free bench. North Ridge is dry and where there is ice/snow, it's possible to climb around it.
