TripoliRickLate start but 20 in line to rap off

TripoliRick

Nick and I got a late start (11 am) and we just hiked over to take a look at the route (Exum) when we saw someone above on the first pitch. Hey, we can still go and use their rope for the long rap down. Turned out to be a solo roping climber that was climbing each pitch twice (lead-rap-clean-prussik). It was getting late so we offered to belay his leads. Got to the summit where 20 or so climbers were waiting to rap down. Interesting.

Fun day on the Grand. Finished with the Exum. Much easier than I had remembered it from a few years earlier.

My first time up the Grand was in early July 1995 after a good winter. The peak was still snow covered at the time. The last time I was there was solo in 2002, on a busy day, typical now for the Grand with all of the guiding business. In 1996 I took a friend to the top who had always dreamed of it, and we had the top alone for 1 and a half hours, a rare treat for this crowded mountain. The 6 times I have been there are always special, because it is after all, The Grand Teton.

Only took 3 trips to the upper saddle before the weather was good enough to go for it. We summitted just as a storm hit and dropped 3 inches of snow in about 2 hours. It was a complete white out on the decent. We couldn't even see 10 feet. We almost had a serious epic. Still, it was an amazing climb. I can't wait to get back to the Tetons!

Climbed via Exum Route after spending night in hut (yuck) at lower saddle. (Next time I'll sleep outside.) Descended via Owen Spaulding to Lupine Meadows.

due to weather moving in, but cleared just long enough for us to finish the climb.

A very complex mountain. We tried to do the complete Exum, but couldn't figure out the start of the route.

I hurt my ribs on this climb. I fell and my brother in law's belay saved my life. I had a lot of air beneath me! It was the first time I ever fell against standard protection as opposed to being top roped or in a gym. It happened too fast to be scared. After crashing against the rock I grabbed it like a cat and had an easier climb up than where I was a moment before. It took a few pitches to settle down mentally. After that my ribs started to hurt. The only choice was to go on. The rapel on the way down was neat. The hike out was a slog.

Started the Exum route but exited at the start of the Upper Exum because the weather was threatening. We ended up getting to the summit via the OS route.

Upper Exum, car to car. Ran into some fresh snow on top, which turned everyone back down that day but us. Us being Dr. Vandervort and Galina. With the doctors superb leading skills we found our way down. Long day to say the least, but a great adventure.

My wife and I did OS in a single day from Lupine. Started around 2:30 and were on the summit around 11:30. It was great day and had good weather until around 1:30.
