Description

The majority of the divide is well over 10,000 feet and overlooks the emerald waters of Snowdrift Lake in Avalanche Canyon. Avalanche Divide continually ascends to the base of "The Wall," a formidable cliff band and mountain rising to 11,108'. Directly to the east, views of South Teton's western wall dominate the horizon.

If you're comfortable with off-trail navigation and scrambling, you can access a long-abandoned route from Avalanche Divide through Avalanche Canyon. This eventually reaches a junction with the Alaska Basin Trail, just west of Veiled Peak (11,330').
