In 1971, Bill Briggs claimed the first ski descent of Wyoming's giant, the Grand Teton. But the Ivy League grad with a fused hip didn't do it for fame or glory.
Despite the poor weather forecast and getting his second jab, Mike Hattrup still took on the Grand Teton. The results were varied.
Santiago Vega worked with IFMGA Guide Mark Smiley and local guide Tim Cohn to make the first known disabled ski descent of the Grand Teton.
