Mount Owen was one of the last of the great Teton peaks to be climbed, owing to the failure of several early attempts. The mountain is known not only for its own spectacular height and beauty, but for the incredible view from its summit of the north face of the Grand Teton.

Mount Owen honors William O. Owen, member of the first documented ascent of the Grand Teton on August 11, 1898.
