4 hrs from the saddle to the summit via upper Exum (including a wrong turn up OS that cost us about 600' vert). 6 hours out to TH. Very fantastic climb!

Started up the Upper Exum but bailed quickly due to ugly looking clouds. Made it up the OS Owen Chimney var. Some ice still in the chimney from a nasty storm that hit 2 days prior. Amazing summit.

Slept in parking lot under an excursion because of rainfall and lack of tent. Started hiking at about 2. Made it to the saddle in 3 hours. Weather was bad and snowy. Planned on upper exum route but only made it to the eye of needle and turned back. Next time....

Finished the V-pitch, went around to the left (wrong) side of the wall, decided to bail down the rappel to save light. WoundedKnee and I will be back to finish it...

Great one-day climb (15 hours RT), too bad the top was in the clouds as a thunderstorm approached so we didn't see anything, but still a great climb.

Climbed the OS through a hail storm! It was a great climb with huge winds on top! I will come back for the Exum Ridge direct.

My climbing partner's brother wanted to go so we chose the OS to keep the day from getting too long and we got off route for 1.5 hours up the great west chimney and had to back track. It was quite the easy route after we got back on the right route.

This was the highlight of my trip to the Tetons (esp. considering the weather prevented us from doing any of the other climbs we'd planned). It was great to be able to go back here to climb a (THE) peak only accessible to "experienced" climbers, as the ranger told me as a kid when I visited with my mom (one of my favorite vacations ever). Even better to do one of the classic routes with a good friend.

To Moraine Camp from TH took 5 hours of moderate hiking. We were starting up the base of the ridge by 8.30, after leaving camp at 6.30. We were at Wall St. at ~15.30, & summited ~17.30. Back at camp by 21.30. Belayed 1.5 pitches on Upper Exum (including the Friction Pitch). Fittingly, led/climbed the whole thing in my 5.10 Exum Guides (time for a career change??? :)

Great completing another CLASSIC route (it truly deserves that designation) on another world-class mountain with ya, G Man. Weather was great, rock perfect, views tremendous, & position commanding. A great trip, & an awesome climb!

A long day from moraines camp with Dirk. For the upper Exum we roped up for the friction pitch and a short section just before that. The rock is beautiful and amazingly varied, and we had about perfect weather. The "black face" pitch and the last pitch of the lower Exum were my favorites. Summit views were incredible. The approach and regular descent route were hell compared to most routes I've done in CA, the descent rappels were intimidating too.

Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2008


Incredible weather again for my second Teton visit... Camped at Meadows and climbed South for aclimatization after rough night (super windy), then Grand via the OS next day. Soloed everything to pass the great weather/end of season/Saturday morning crowds--must have been 30 parties on the mountain. Just over 4 hours up from the meadows, about an hour off of my previous time.
