Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2013


Fantastic route, but long, 19 hour day. Got nervous coming down in the near dark, but had a wonderful time.

grabbs146O.S. Witich Crack  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2013


We climbed the O.S. route with the Witich Crack Var. We camped at the moraine the day before and after. The weather was perfect! Sun all day and no rain while we camped and climbed. Though on the night before it did storm in the valley nothing happened on the mountains.

VortexSummit by Upper Exum  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2013


After a streak of bad weather we found a perfect day to summit. No wind, sunny, warm weather and not another soul on the famous Upper Exum. Absolutely the most amazing climbing experience of my life only slightly dulled by the 20 hr, 7000 ft day from the Lupine TH.

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2013


It took three nights at high camp and the caves for our team of twelve to get it done but we were victorious. Great climbing on both ice and rock with perfect weather on summit day. Climbed this peak with the Sierra Mountaineering Group (SMG) based in Sacramento.

Darren9The Grand Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2013


Sierra Mountaineering Group successfully put 10 climbers on the Grand via the Exum Ridge and Owen Spalding Route. Rainy, cloudy weather plagued our ascent the two days before. Our patience was rewarded with a perfect, cloudless day and some fun moderate climbing on both ice and rock. What an amazing mountain and a true American classic.

Free-Solo Dayhike. Definitely not 5.4 by CA standards. More 4/5 class for the 600'. Lots of smoke from fires.

haishanInteresting day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2012


Rained on during the approach from the Meadows, it started clearing at dawn so we got onto the Lower Exum. Started raining harder on p2, so we bailed into Wall St gully. Clearing again as we intersected the descent trail, so we continued up Owen-Spaulding, and took the Wittich Crack around a log jam. Total white-out on the summit, and an uneventful descent. Would really like to get back up there...

Climbed the OS back when i was a Sophmore in high school. It was my time in the tetons, and after that i was hooked. Since then i have climbed both the Upper Exum(twice) and the Direct Petzoldt routes on the Grand, and hope to do many more routes!

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.

Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2012


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!
