Sargent's Chimney

The Grand Teton's Owen-Spalding Route









The alternative Hidden Exit out of Sargent's tops out at the same height as the top of Sargent's main chimney. You can access Sargent's by walking a short distance to the south. The path to the summit is just to the north of the Hidden Exit. Walk a short distance to the north and then turn NE and follow the easiest line to the summit - it's a straight shot but you might want to zig-zag around some features.
