The Bear Claw area, also known as The Claw, is a section of steep North facing chutes. It starts just to the East of Avalanche Bowl. This zone is very dangerous and very prone to avalanche. From West to East you'll find Elusive, Hidden Couloir, Dogleg, Butt Crack, and The Playboy Chutes.

Teton Pass Summit

There is an overflow lot where parking is permitted 1 quarter of a mile to the East of the summit of Teton Pass. Sometimes parking is closed at the top of the pass and in those times you'll have to be dropped off or hitchhike.
