After a straightforward 5.5 hr drive from Salt Lake City, I pulled into the Lupine Meadows parking lot at about 2am, searching for Steph Abegg, my climbing partner from Seattle who would be joining me for an ambitious multiday linkup and carryover of various routes on and around the Grand Teton. I quickly found a red Subaru Forester, and confirmed her car by spotting her custom Pickets climbing bumper sticker. I pulled around the backside, waking Steph from her slumber, hidden behind her Subaru. Oops! I threw down for a few hours of sleep and we were both up and gearing up by about 7am.
