Climbing Route Conditions

Koven Couloir, Mount Owen
In the summer, this section provides updated route condition information for select climbing routes and some of the more popular approaches and descents in Grand Teton National Park.  Please be aware:

  • Many of these approaches and descents remain snow-covered throughout much of the summer season.  
  • The ability to properly use an ice axe and/or crampons may be required to ensure safe travel.  
  • Consult more than one guidebook and visit the Jenny Lake Ranger station for additional information. 
  • Make sure you know your descent route as thoroughly as the ascent.
