The Teton Bullseye is a route that combines climbing the Grand Teton then running around the massif of the mountain on the Teton Circumnavigation loop. The route begins at Lupin Meadows trailhead and climbs up Garnet Canyon to summit the Grand Teton. Once back at the Garnet/ Valley Trail junction the route links up with the Teton Circumnavigation towards and up Death Canyon, up Static Divide, over Hurricane Pass and down Cascade Canyon. Once on the Jenny Lake trail the route connects back to the Valley Trail ending at Lupin Meadows for a total of 47 miles and roughly 15,300 feet of accumulated vertical gain. 

Luke Nelson, who created the route and called it "The Up and Around", Mike Foote, and Ty Draney made an attempt in July 2012 but became stuck on the lower Owen Spalding route when they were unable to pass multiple roped up parties and were forced to bail before summiting. They returned to Lupin Meadows then set off to run and complete the Circumnavigation. More information on their attempt can be found here:

Ryan Burke completed the route on September 17th, 2020 in 14 hours and 39 minutes in a supported style. He nicknamed it the Bullseye.
