How fit do I need to be to climb the Grand Teton?
The short answer is,”I’m glad you asked.” The longer answer is that the better shape you are in the more you will enjoy it. You are comitting some time and resources to be here. What a great motivator to get moving! All that said, good cardio, a long attention span and sense of humor will almost always carry the day.
What are the sleeping accommodations at Corbett high camp?
We have a Weatherport quanset hut for cooking and gathering, but we our guests sleep in new Mountain Hardware dome tents spread around the moraine for some privacy and greatly enhanced sleeping arrangements.
What is a sticky rubber approach shoe? It sounds disgusting.
It is a hybrid lightweight boot or shoe with features of a light hiker and a rock climbing shoe. The lacing is focused down to the toe and the shoe is randed and soled with the high performance rubber used in technical rock shoes. The idea is to utilize one shoe for the entire trip on the Grand Teton.
If I book a class for my kids, can I go along and watch and take photos?
This depends on the location. Some of the spots are easily accessible, and would not require a long approach. In the event that it is a possibility, we would have you sign an additional release form. Please inquire with our office for more information specific to each location and climbing objective.
