Write Up:
Five GMS members had a successful trip to Painted Teepee. Rather than following the Two Medicine Pass Trail all the way to the Pass, we walked up the gentle northeast facing ridge of Chief Lodgepole and rejoined the trail before the summit. The traverse over to Painted Teepee was uneventful, but the climb on the "balance beam" rock column to the summit was extremely scary. One day that rock will collapse, we hope it will happen without a climber on it.
