[NEW] Chouinard-Frost Chimney (5.9+, IV) Topo – Disappointment Peak, North Face, Grand Teton Nat. Park (2022)

An updated and thorough topo of the Chouinard-Frost Chimney on the north face of Disappointment Peak in Grand Teton National Park.


In July 2022 Connor James and I climbed the Chouinard-Frost Chimney on the north face of Disappointment Peak. I found the modern topo in “Teton Rock Climbs” (Gams, 2012) lacking, and the Ortenburger-Jackson topo primitive. We relied heavily on intuition to make a successful ascent, and therefor I felt compelled to create my own overlay-topo for future climbers. The terrain photo was shot by me, from Teton Glacier, August 2022.

For prospective climbers interested in the Chouinard-Frost Chimney, check out our trip report here.
