We were among the first several groups to summit The Grand in nearly a week, because of ice and snow. The weather was perfect for our climb. A little snow on the OS descent, but easily manageable. Great climb!

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2013


8/14/2013 Climbed this route with Exum guides. We left base camp at the saddle at 4:15 am. Climbing the first several pitches in the dark was interesting. The Step Across in the dark sure got the blood pumping. We started seeing our first signs of light as we entered the Wind Tunnel. We reached the summit a little before 8 am and enjoyed a little over a half hour of ideal conditions on top. Our descent was by way of the 100' rappel and the OS route. Awesome experience.

Hazy at the top and the descent was a little cold and icy, but a great day nonetheless.

PanamaRedFirst Lead   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2011


It was my first time leading climbing. Needless to say it was awsome! Wall Street was quite a rush, as well as the V pitch! I recently climbed it again on September 1, 2013, and once again had a blast!. We did the route car to car. My foot was killing me on the descent however, and it took me all night to get back to the car.

Solo climb of the Upper Exum on a one-day ascent from Lupine Meadows. Rapelled Owen-Spalding. 12 hours total car-to-car. Fun climbing on an incredible rock, nice exposure/position, stellar views -- classic route!

Awesome climb, an experience I will never forget. I have never been so cold while in the Wind Tunnel waiting for other climbers to go forward.

The views by reputation are stunning, but not much to see when weather has come in. A jagged scramble past some pretty exposed terrain in spots. Placed very little pro on the route.

heather14Great Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2010


After only an hour of sleep thanks to the wind blasting through the Moraine all night we managed to make it up with amazing weather. The Leap of Faith off Wall Street gets your attention. Interesting route finding (we joined with a team that had done it before, but still had to do a little route finding). We went too far right and missed the V pitch, but made up for it with the fun "boulder move". Great mountain, route and day. Can't wait to come back...

I have done this route twice, and will do it again. Mountain climbing at it's finest.
