Griffin Post Hammers the East Face of the Middle Teton

Griffin’s Teton segment in TGR’s Way of Life is effing mind-blowing. There is just no other way to describe it. (Except for maybe aggressive, calculated, and fast.)

The East Face of the Middle is such a big, high-consequence ski mountaineering line and Griffin skied the thing like it was at the resort. He hammered it without stopping from top to bottom — over 1000 feet of full throttle ripping. Even Zahan Billimoria, who’d been guiding big lines in the Tetons for 10 years at the time, had never seen anything like it.

Griffin would follow this line by the same style of descent on Mount Moran, and Apocolypse Couloir — eventually making him known for his remarkable Teton skiing.

Gathering my bags in Anchorage airport, food poisoning announces its arrival over the loudspeaker. It seems Glenfiddich has lost the war with an airport lounge chicken curry. Shame. I quickly pen a savage online review for Singapore Airlines to ponder before breaking the 100 meter dash record. Graciously the beast in my bowels didn’t appear mid-flight. And they say, chivalry is dead. Many unpleasant stops for roadside prayers later we reach Angel Collinson’s house and I slump into bed for a

RELATED: Vermont's Mountain Biking Community Has Something To Prove It’s become a common thing in mountain towns across North America: a crew of friends goes out shredding, and captures the good times on tape to share with the world. The age-old ritual of pulling out a camera to show off the rad sh** you and your friends are up to is not news, but this particular crew of rippers appreciates the art of it a little more than most.
