According to park rangers, Bilyeu was with her climbing partner and a guide from Jackson Hole Mountain Guides when she fell. She was negotiating a short section above the Exum Gully about 8:30 a.m.

Note; I was leading the last few section to the top of Teton in 2010 and had to bailout less than 100 feet of the top due to lighting and sudden storm . IMO, there is something about Teton where you really need to know what you doing and have to execute a solid exit plan in short notice.

RIP
