Static Peak (11,303 feet (3,445 m)) is located in the Teton Range, Grand Teton National Park, in the U.S. state of Wyoming.[3] Located .48 miles (0.77 km) southeast of Buck Mountain, the summit is also east of the Alaska Basin Trail, from a point known as Static Peak Divide, the summit can be climbed in a scramble. Below the summit on the north face, a small remnant glacier persists, sheltered from direct sunlight by steep cliffs.[4] Timberline Lake lies to the north of the peak.
