teton multisport trip - flat water/gentle float - August 9, 2019

Stay 3 nights at the AAC Climber's Ranch in the Grand Teton National Park. Day 1 will be driving and arriving. Day 2 will be hiking/mountaineering the Southwest Couloir of the Middle Teton (class 3-4). Required Gear: Ice axe, crampons, and helmet. Snow is common on the approach between the meadows and the saddle between the Middle and South Teton. This equipment will make for a safer and more direct approach and decent. Day 3 will be floating the very gently 5 mile stretch of the Snake River from Jackson Lake Dam to Pacific Creek. Participants can bring a canoe, kayak, SUP, ... and will need to register their equipment and get a float permit. Registration and permits are available at the park. Day 4 will be TBD by the group, maybe check out the climbing on Rodeo Wall in Hoback Canyon, and driving home. Participants will need to bring or purchase a park pass. The AAC Ranch is $17 per bunk per night for AAC members and $27 for non-members. Reservations need to be made in advance.
