Bivied at Lower Saddle. The chimneys on the upper part of the route were iced up, making for a much more interesting climb than the guidebook description would suggest.

My partner bailed so I went solo. My first technical alpine climb that I soloed! Great time, although a long day!

What a great way to spend a holiday! It was a last-minute trip that I'll never forget. Next time I'll take more food. And a rope ;)

I especially enjoyed the shadow of the Grand falling on Idaho as the sun rose. What a wonderful morning.

Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2000


I jumped the gap that was supposed to be a hand traverse on Wall Street. Later I heard Glen Exum did the same thing on his first ascent. Validation is a beautiful thing.

chrisferroDirect Exum, 1997


Marcus Folger and I climbed the Direct Exum in summer of 1997. We bivied at the moraines, then did the route and came back down in one day. I remember the route-finding on the upper part of the lower Exum was tricky. I think I got off-route and ended up going sideways along a horizontal crack, but I eventually got back on route and the crux 5.7 pitch was fantastic. The exposure was amazing and the rock was perfect and took great pro. The upper Exum was fun and easy, though long. We actually bailed a pitch or two below the summit by traversing over to the Owen-Spalding rappels because Marcus had some bad blisters on his feet. All in all, it was a great day.

chrisferroNorth Face, 2001  Sucess!


Chris Thomas and I climbed the North Face in summer of 2001. We bivied before getting on the glacier, got up very early, and blasted the route in approach shoes, summitted, then hurried down the Garnet Canyon trail back to the car all in one day. The weather was perfect and so was the climb. I highly recommend this one.

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2004


This is one of those classic peaks that you always look forward to, and it did not disappoint. We climbed it in two days camping just below the saddle on the first night. One of my top 10 peaks so far!
