    Eklutna Traverse 4/27-4/29

    We slept in the morning of the 25th, exhausted from back-to-back big days, and headed to a coffee shop to figure out our next moves.

    With temperatures in Salt Lake City peaking well into the 100’s, Taryn and I decided to escape to Jackson for another weekend away. We initially discussed attempting the Cloudveil Traverse as our run up Middle and South Teton had left us inspired to complete that section of the ridge line, but as the weekend grew…
