This area, while actually on Matternaught Peak, is best described seperately as the routes end a long ways below the summit. The buttress faces east with a slight tilt to the south, so it's in the sun for quite some time, 'til late afternoon. An ice axe is probably necessary for the descent until late season. We were able to rap over the last remaining snowpatch in late July '07.

Getting There 

From Taminah Lake, look north and locate a broad gully leading into a large cirque. Dem Bones buttress is the first prominent buttress on the west side of this gully. Allow about an hour from Taminah Lake.

An awesome route on some of the best Teton rock I've seen. A little much for a day (w/ the Avalanche approach), but perfect for a weekend combination with any of the other routes in the area (or possible new routes!). NOTE: We used a 70 meter rope (quickly becoming the new standard in the Tetons) and thus linked pitches and used different belay spots than described in the book. P1- Start in flakes/cracks just left of the biggest roof system on the buttress. Continue up, traversing underneath a r...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
