Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2000


Long day scramble and climb, in part because of the permit system. The Rappel was the most exhilirating part of the day. Regardless of how many people, this peak is special.

El_CapitanRoute Climbed: Upper Exum Date Climbed: August 13, 2005  Sucess!
We originally wanted to climb the Exum Direct but it was quite cold in the morning and we didn't want to climb with gloves on. The guide groups left quite a bit earlier than us so we had some trouble finding Broadway to start the Upper Exum. It was obvious once we found it. To help the acclimitization, we spent a night at the Meadows, then the Saddle before summiting.

It was a perfect day and a great scramble/climb. We ran into some traffic on the way up and at the rappels on the way down. The Jackson Mountain guides generously allowed us to alternate with their group on the 120 ft rappel. Thanks guys!

iceisniceRoute Climbed: Black Ice Couloir Date Climbed: Feb 2000  Sucess!


One of the hardest climbs of my life. Winter ascent of the couloir with a finish up the OS for a summit. Round trip, car-to-car was 36 hrs. One of the most demanding days of my life. A day that's been hard to repeat.

iceisniceRoute Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: Summer '99  Sucess!


Some don't like this route cuz of the amount of scrambling to technical pitches. However, a great mountaineer's route.

Great climb, but, too many people during the main season.

Amazing climb. Just as good as the exum but with no crowds.

iceisniceRoute Climbed: North Face Date Climbed: July '04  Sucess!


Phenominal climb. One of my favorites. Pretty big day out. Climb is loose at first, but gets into some great pitches high up.

Spectacular route and mountain. There were several parties on the route which slowed us down a bit but over all a "grand climb".

I feel really fortunate to have bagged the Grand for my first mountain.

I’m from Wyoming and have been around the Tetons growing up, never dreamed I’d see the view from the top!

We were supposed to take Exum Ridge but the weather turned bad in the middle of the night so the Exum guide made the decision to summit via Owen Spalding… very cool alpine type experience in July!

If your thinking about climbing the Grand ‘just do it’.

tdoughtyRoute Climbed: Exum x 2 ('82 & '85), East Ridge ('90) Date Climbed: August '82, '85, '90  Sucess!


First trip up Exum was with my wife, Cinda. Met the man himself, Mr. Chounard, on top. Had fun lighting bottle rockets. 2nd time was with my good friend James Barnett. Then, Paul Dowdy and I did the East Ridge in '90. We never did see the approach ledges from the lake in daylight. It was dark when we started, and dark when we finished. Well named mountain, it is GRAND!!!

Moogie737Route Climbed: Exum Ridge Date Climbed: August 25, 2005  Sucess!


Constant winds gusting to 50 mph the day and the night prior to the climb made getting sleep at the Exum Hut (Upper Saddle) impossible. Started up with my daughter, Angela Wunderli, at 4:25 a.m. and reached the summit at 9:30. Winds at the summit were still 25-30 mph but didn't hold us back. Amazing vistas and a wonderful 150' rappel on the way down helped make this adventure one we will never forget. Lodging at the Climbers' Ranch was also an adventure!

Keith & I did it in two days in hiking boots - the chute above Black Ice Couloir was icy and scary! Glad Keith led that one!

John_SandlianRoute Climbed: Owen Spalding Wittich crack var. Date Climbed: August 14, 2005  Sucess!
We got two permits for the Merain which adds about 45 minutes of hike. We started our adventure at 4 am. and got to the Owen Spalding route to find a line of climbers. After consulting our guide book we found that we were sitting at the base of the Wittich crack variation. It was a good climb with pitons everyonce in a while. The crack leads you back in to a cave that offered warmth during the belay. The next move brings you out on a face fully exposed and then a crawl up to a belay station with another piton. From there its all scrampling and repeling.

old5tenRoute Climbed: Lower and Upper Exum Date Climbed: August 6th, 2005  Sucess!


We're probably the last party to leave the Lower Saddle just past dawn, but still made pretty good time due to simulclimbing (too much rope drag) and soloing the Upper Exum. Lower Exum was moderate and not all that great. Summit views were awesome!
