1st trip to Jackson Hole. I have seen hundreds of pictures of the Tetons and until you see them in person you will never know. I'm lucky to have climbed the Grandest of them all.

Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2008


Got off-route and finished the V-pitch at 4pm. At the time, the route to the summit wasn't obvious to us, so we rapped off to make sure we had enough daylight. Good thing, too, as we decended the wrong gully and had to retrace some of our scrambling back through the eye of the needle. A fun climb, but I'm upset I didn't finish the last couple hundred feet to the summit.

This was out sweet variation of the Owen-Spalding which included the never before attempted (as far as we know) "Bucking Bronco" pitch. A sweet climb, somehow with very few people, on a perfect weather day. A celebratory cigar was thoroughly enjoyed on this fine afternoon.

Excellent route. Did the Petzold Direct to the Upper Exum. Some excellent exposure and a classic route. Highly recommended.

A fine route on a proud mountain. The threat of storms kept us moving; round trip time was 13 hours from Lupine Meadows.

Climbed this mountain three times. Iwas successful all three. One on the O.S., and twice on the upper Exum. Will have to go back again!

As they say "a classic route". Six hours round trip from the lower saddle.

Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2008


What a fun two days! Some of the best mountain scenery I've ever seen. We summited on a Thursday and only saw one other group on the Exum Ridge. There were two groups on the Owen-Spalding that we saw as we rappelled down. I would definitely recommend climbing on a weekday, the mountain experience and relative solitude is fantastic! We also lucked out with great weather.

TripoliRickLate start but 20 in line to rap off


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.

Long day of climbing. Great to stand at the top.

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.
