The climbing closure on Baxter's Pinnacle is lifted. The climb was closed due to Peregrine Falcon nesting, but unfortunately the nest failed so the closure is no longer necessary.
Conditions update for the Grand Teton: ice axe and crampons recommended for both the Upper Exum and Owen-Spalding Routes. Much of the rock on the routes is dry, however patches of hard snow and occasionally ice linger in chimneys, ledges, and cracks. Ice axe and crampons are also recommended to access the Lower Saddle from the Meadows.
