Write Up:
It was just Denise and I today. We decided to do a repeat of a scramble we did on April 29, 2007, that we call Appendix Ridge (named after the organ and based on what happened the night after the initial climb). This ridge is located between the main branch of the Teton River and the Teton Pass ski resort with un-named peaks 6,888 and 6,824. We traversed from south to north. It is a difficult scramble with options to avoid the more severe pitches on the west side of the ridge crest. The route is presently snow free except along the very top of the ridge where the snow is firmly settled. As expected, all major drainages in this region are basically impossible to cross. Even the drainages that are barely a trickle this time of year have some flow. This is the highest water I have seen in the 24 years I have been doing trips in the greater Glacier region. Also of note there have been some issues with black bears in the Cave Mountain Campground this spring. We did not see any activity but the ranger does make a drive through in the morning alerting campers.
