Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2012


Amazing climb! Nailed the eye of the needle in the dark thanks to some excellent beta from another climber at the upper saddle. Got lost for an hour trying to find Wall street in the dark, but otherwise all wonderful in perfect conditions.

Direct Exum, 21 hours car to car. Lead p1 and 3-6 on Lower. Combined p3&4 and p5&6 for 4 pitches total. Soloed Upper in approach shoes. Buddy forgot his harness so I gave him mine and climbed in a makeshift sling harness.

A long day with the hike back to the trail head. Finished up on "The Horse" (5.6?) which leads to the summit.

Got a late start and bailed at the upper saddle. Had a bad thunderstorm roll through that afternoon, which, as slow as I was, would have put me and my guide right in the middle of.
Want to get back soon and try it again.

Snuck up although the forecast wasn't so hot. Weather ended up holding splendidly. Lower Exum is steep, sustained and amazing. Soloed Upper Exum. Great first time in the Tetons!

Upper Exum from camp at Lower Saddle. Scrambled most of it. Led the crux friction pitch. Easy but fun.

Great climb up the OS Route. Only made it to the upper saddle the first day, but came back to summit the next day in spite of some ominous weather in the morning. Trip Report

What a great route- steep climbing on the Lower with easier climbing on the Upper. Stayed in Meadows and it was 13 hrs RT for us and that was with 2 hrs of waiting for the group ahead of us- ugh!

Left Lupine trailhead at midnight, hit the saddle by 5 am, and the peak by 11:00 am (yes we were slow, and there was some traffic on the route). Back to the trailhead at 6pm (again, yes we were slow). Awesome mountain and fun route (Upper Exum).

Hid in the caves for awhile on 7/11/12 to wait out a late morning thunderstorm. Stayed at the Lower Saddle and then up the next morning. Beautiful day, uneventful and a fun rappel.

Really lucked out with weather. The direct variation to the 5th pitch on the lower exum is incredible!

Climbed the Upper Exum Ridge. Caught a lucky lighting/storm free day between two nasty ones. Did not use any guide service, just maps, photos, and a good climbing partner. First time above 13,000! Beautiful day!

Direct Exum after being stormed off @ the saddle 3 days prior with the Gold Face in mind. Was going to do Cathedral traverse, but the weather window was less than perfect and so we thoguht to try Gold Face again, got to the saddle once more and saw a stowm forming, banged out Upper Exum quickly and ran down the the caves where an apocolyptic lightning storm hailed ~ 2 inches in less than 5 minutes and set small land slides from Disappointment peak hucking boulders the size of minicoopers dozens of yards into the air. We just watched in aww from the safety of the caves. Luckily nobody died up top that day. We checked and for real they could have.

Climbed the Owens Spalding with Exum guide Mike Abbey and Jalil from Uray, Colorado. Early morning thunder showers and high winds subsided to bluebird skies by dawn. Awesome time!
