Teewinot - Owen Traverse
This traverse includes a climb of the East Face of Teewinot, a scramble along the long ridge connecting Teewinot and Mt. Owen, and an ascent of Mt. Owen via either the East Ridge or the Koven Route. The face on Teewinot is mostly 4th class climbing with occasional pitches of easy 5th class. The East Ridge on Owen is traditionally graded 5.7, and the Koven Route is slightly easier. Expect extensive snowfields throughout the traverse early in the season.
The summit of Teewinot is one of the most spectacular in the range. If the party chooses the classic East Ridge of Mt. Owen, they will encounter challenging mixed climbing on the second highest Teton summit. The traverse is typically done in two days with a bivy, usually on the notch at the top of the Koven Couloir. It can be done in one long day by a guide and a very fit climber, but you probably won't want to climb anything else for a week.
