Middle Teton (12,804')

Many people consider the Middle Teton, third highest of the Teton peaks, to be one of the most interesting mountains of the range.  Its structure is complex and harbors numerous routes, although only two, the Southwest Couloir and the North Ridge, are often climbed.  With very few exceptions these are virtually the only routes used for descent.  The Middle Teton is one of but two peaks (Mount Moran) in the range that afford genuine glacier routes to the summit.
