Static Peak is situated on the southern end of the Teton Range within the Grand Teton National Park. Towering just to the north of Static Peak stands Buck Mountain, 600 feet higher than Static Peak, and a technical climb in nature.
Static Peak can be summitted from a non-technical standpoint from the Death Canyon Trailhead near Moose Junction, WY. Although the peak can be reached by non-technical means, the route is lengthy and very strenuous, gaining 5,000 feet of elevation in under 8 miles. Views from the top include Buck Mountain and the Teton Range to the north, Jackson Hole to the southeast, and the Wind River Range in the distant southeast.
