Bivy camp on Spalding Peak, Nez Perce/South Teton ...


The South Teton is the smallest of the three Tetons, and the easiest of the three to climb. A one-day ascent of this peak is no simple hike due to the nearly 6000 foot elevation gain. It is the 5th highest peak in the Teton Range.

Getting There
