5 out of 5 stars Baxter's - first outdoor climb

First 4-5 pitches are almost scrambles, top pitch is awesome with tough moves. Sidepulls and liebacks. Don't forget to check the views. Rap off the back side for extra fun. We were lucky with the weather, so the day went easily. last pitch was a bit tricky, but made it up with a hint from our guide, Bill Anderson. Great route to hook me on climbing.

4 out of 5 stars geat climb

easiest approach in the tetons. seizure disorder is a great variation and the 5.10 crack on the east face of the last pitch needs to be done more.
