Teutonia Peak Track
Kessler Peak from the road
Heading toward the peak. We'll be taking the ramp in the middle of the photo. Kind of steep but pretty easy.
Heading toward the peak
On our way up the peak, looking back down the steep slope. Teutonia/Cima dome across the way, and one of the few paved roads going through the park in between.
Gaining the first ridge
We're heading up there.
On the Kessler Peak ridge
We all made it!
Heading back down - our cars are by the cluster of rocks near the road to the right.
Looking back at Kessler from near the cars
Lunch, beers, and comparing of cactus bites back at the car. I think some lotion will help.
On our way to Teutonia Peak. There is an actual trail here (one of only two in the park, I think), but it doesn't go all the way to the real peak.
Looking back at Kessler
We start to climb to the outcropping that is Teutonia
The trail peters out around the rock in the middle of the ridge. But the summit is still a ways away.
On the ridge
That's the true summit, down the ridge.
