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 

The standard route is approached from Lupine Meadows.
