WalkoutnowUpper Exum  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2017


What a great, majestic mountain! We had a great and speedy ascent up the ridge, with clear skies all around. A bit windy and gusty, but dry and fun climbing. I would go up and do this route again tomorrow. Hope to be back for this mountain and its neighbors in the future.

Still a lot of snow on the mountain. Traveling to the lower saddle required crampons and ice axe. We had to turned back the day before after reaching the black dyke above the lower saddle due to thunderstorms. Submitted via the Owen-Spalding just in time before snow showers hit us during the rappels on the way down.
Timeline: departed JHMG high camp at 3am, summit at 10am, back to the Lupine Meadows trailhead at 8pm with one hour break below JHMG camp.

Did it again 7 days later! Can't wait to come back more experienced and conquer the Exum Ridge.

I started this summer in no shape to attempt a technical climb but after continually challenging myself week after week I gathered the experience and confidence to free solo this monster.

Easy up the Owens Spalding. Amazing as always. Had a bear walk into camp 5 feet away from me- way cool!

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2011


Made it to the top via PG route w/ my good friend Jeff and our guide. One of the best climbs I've even done. A lot of snow left on the mountain from winter snows in 2010/2011. Stayed 1 night out at about 10K feet ... Taylor from JHMG was great.

We intended to climb the Wittich, but it was full of ice. Instead we climbed the Owen Spalding, which was also in the shade but less icy. The wind was awful and so strong. We summited though, hiked out, and drove all the way back to UT. Glad to bag this one!

Just an amazing time! First technical climb ever. Love the snow, the wind, the clouds, all of it. Nice to stand atop a mountain so grand knowing that millions of people view it from below.

Fun and challenging climb with a great group of friends. The team of Steve, Dan, Cameron, Nik and myself had a perfect weather window. The belly roll and crawl had epic exposure. The double chimney, Owens chimney and Sargents chimney had snow and ice in sections making it a little more challenging. The Grand certainly lived up to its name!

We were among the first several groups to summit The Grand in nearly a week, because of ice and snow. The weather was perfect for our climb. A little snow on the OS descent, but easily manageable. Great climb!
