VortexSummit by Upper Exum  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2013

Vortex

After a streak of bad weather we found a perfect day to summit. No wind, sunny, warm weather and not another soul on the famous Upper Exum. Absolutely the most amazing climbing experience of my life only slightly dulled by the 20 hr, 7000 ft day from the Lupine TH.

It took three nights at high camp and the caves for our team of twelve to get it done but we were victorious. Great climbing on both ice and rock with perfect weather on summit day. Climbed this peak with the Sierra Mountaineering Group (SMG) based in Sacramento.

Sierra Mountaineering Group successfully put 10 climbers on the Grand via the Exum Ridge and Owen Spalding Route. Rainy, cloudy weather plagued our ascent the two days before. Our patience was rewarded with a perfect, cloudless day and some fun moderate climbing on both ice and rock. What an amazing mountain and a true American classic.

Free-Solo Dayhike. Definitely not 5.4 by CA standards. More 4/5 class for the 600'. Lots of smoke from fires.

Rained on during the approach from the Meadows, it started clearing at dawn so we got onto the Lower Exum. Started raining harder on p2, so we bailed into Wall St gully. Clearing again as we intersected the descent trail, so we continued up Owen-Spaulding, and took the Wittich Crack around a log jam. Total white-out on the summit, and an uneventful descent. Would really like to get back up there...

Climbed the OS back when i was a Sophmore in high school. It was my time in the tetons, and after that i was hooked. Since then i have climbed both the Upper Exum(twice) and the Direct Petzoldt routes on the Grand, and hope to do many more routes!

Amazing climb! Nailed the eye of the needle in the dark thanks to some excellent beta from another climber at the upper saddle. Got lost for an hour trying to find Wall street in the dark, but otherwise all wonderful in perfect conditions.

Direct Exum, 21 hours car to car. Lead p1 and 3-6 on Lower. Combined p3&4 and p5&6 for 4 pitches total. Soloed Upper in approach shoes. Buddy forgot his harness so I gave him mine and climbed in a makeshift sling harness.

A long day with the hike back to the trail head. Finished up on "The Horse" (5.6?) which leads to the summit.

Got a late start and bailed at the upper saddle. Had a bad thunderstorm roll through that afternoon, which, as slow as I was, would have put me and my guide right in the middle of.
Want to get back soon and try it again.

Snuck up although the forecast wasn't so hot. Weather ended up holding splendidly. Lower Exum is steep, sustained and amazing. Soloed Upper Exum. Great first time in the Tetons!

Great climb up the OS Route. Only made it to the upper saddle the first day, but came back to summit the next day in spite of some ominous weather in the morning. Trip Report

What a great route- steep climbing on the Lower with easier climbing on the Upper. Stayed in Meadows and it was 13 hrs RT for us and that was with 2 hrs of waiting for the group ahead of us- ugh!
