Day Hiker

An excellent route that I would like to do again when I don't have the flu. The weather was perfect -- sunny and calm winds all day. Thanks cp0915 and rwkent for an awesome trip.

gatoN Face Original Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2006


Classic indeed, with great exposure, some loose and wet rock to keep it spicy, but no weather. Long day with the circumnavigation of the Grand but completely worth it.

b.North Face, Old School Finish  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2006


Climbed the standard North Face route. Ice on the pendulum pitch and the late hour sent us around the west side. Getting on the route from the glacier was a little adventurous, but not bad. Bypassed all other snow and ice on the route by climbing slabs on the first ledge to the right of the ice.

Climbed with Dave Carman from Exum. We started at Lupine meadows at 3:30am, summited at noon and arrived back at the meadows at 6:30pm. Also as a bonus climbed Carman's tower, a short pitch above Wall Street, with Dave Carman. We couldn't have had better weather- no clouds for the duration. Great time!

Wonderful climb, a week later and I'm still euphoric over the experience. My first trip to the area, and first (but not last) Rocky Mountain climb.

6/24/06: via Direct Exum - Started from Lupine Meadows TH at 1:30am and summited just before 11:00. A great June day, not a cloud in the sky and only a handful of climbers scattered on the mountain. Fun route on excellent rock.

5/13/06: via Stettner Couloir - Climbed with Brian on a crystal clear Spring day. Camped at the Meadows on day 1, then summited via the Stettner Couloir on day 2. Didn't see a single person anywhere on the mountain the entire day.

When I was a wee lad of 12 my dad and brothers went up this great climb. An amazing day for an amazing trip, along with climbing Steeple Peak in the Wind River which to this day still remains my favorite climb.

Second time up the upper exum. This time with 3 friends who had never been out of the gym. What a great first climb! As we started hiking the northern lights were out in full force.

Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2000


Ran into R. Garibotti (sp?) on between the Lower and Upper saddles. He was guiding and Exum group up the OS. They and we were going to do the upper exum, but because of snow the night before, we opted for the OS. We also ran into some Jackson Hole Mtn Guides on the summit, one named "Bean" who rolled his own cigarettes on the summit.

A wonderful time with my good friend Karl Lainhart. This was a grand adventure for two Kentucky boys with limited alpine experience. Spent the night on the lower saddle, then summited the next day in great weather.

I climbed the Grand once in summer 1993 and ten times in spring/summer 1996 by the following routes: Owen-Spaulding (2x), Direct Exum (2x), Upper Exum, Petzoldt Ridge, Underhill Ridge, East Ridge, North Ridge and North Face. I climbed the North Face in 19.5 hours car to car with someone who later became an Exum Guide. It was our first and only climb together. I made the mistake of starting up the first 5.6/7 pitch in my hiking boots and took a 10-15 foot whipper about 100 feet above the glacier. Brian was probably thinking, "what the hell have I gotten myself into!" I then put on my climbing shoes while hanging from a single cam and tried desperately to redeem myself. We did quite a lot of simul-climbing and encountered occasional showers of rock and ice while on route. We summitted at 4:30 and enjoyed light rain during the rappels on descent. A true alpine experience!
