The Cloudveil Traverse is the easiest of the Teton traverses, but it is very airy with awesome exposure on the south into Avalanche Canyon. The traverse connects the South Teton, Ice Cream Cone, Gilkey Tower, Spalding Peak, Cloudveil Dome and Nez Perce in one long push. The notches and saddles between these peaks are not as low as in other traverses, hence climbers lose little elevation. The climbing is complex, with snow slopes, possibly patches of ice climbing, knife-edge ridges, and complicated route finding that often looks improbable but--surprise!--always turns out just fine. Although the Cloudveil Traverse can be done in one long day, Exum recommends two days, with a camp in the South Fork of Garnet Canyon and an early start the following morning. This two-day traverse is an excellent option for those new to long multi-summit mountaineering routes.
