Free soloed Upper Exum Ridge on a one-day ascent from Lupine Meadows TH. Descended/rapelled Owen-Spalding. Beautiful weather, stellar views, classic route!

went up the Owens Spalding route with my wife and a great guide from Exum. the rappel down was not as bad as I expected. Must admit that I didnt look down during the Belly Roll and Belly Crawl pitches! Overall great climbing and great views. Favorite peak of the 300 or so that I have climbed
First climb of the mountain. Up the Upper Exum and down the OS. Loved the rappel on the OS. Extremely windy all day
8/12/11 via Upper Exum.. pitched it out and took a long long time
7/12/12 Via Full Exum Pitched out the lower and freed the upper.(Car to Car/One Day Blitz)
8/16/12 Via North Ridge with Italian Crack Vari. (As part of Grand Traverse)
7/18/13 via Becky Coulior to Petzoid Ridge and Simuled the Upper exum. We went with the intention of climbing the Direct Petzoid but didn't have great route info and ended up going up Becky Coulior then did a pretty fun 5.8, 80ft pitch up to the Window Pitch on the Petzoid Ridge and then climbed the final 3 pitches of the Petzoid Ridge. (One Day Blitz)
we were one of three parties that made the summit before weather came it. it was light snow so we continued on. the guides held up their groups. It took about an hour to pass, in which time we carefully started down, and the guide groups continued up. During this time period, the rap was a free rap after a couple steps off a ledge. It's been moved since. This peak is a classic and a "lifetime" accomplishment.
Fun climb, took us a while.
Direct Exum. Lead all the pitches on Lower Exum. Free soloed Upper Exum.
I have a great success. High five!
nice route, though it is easy even for 5.4
Climbed for the first time with Kathy Rich and Daryn Dodge.
Camped at the meadows, climbed the first half of the Direct Exum, and bailed to the Wittich Crack. Afternoon clouds but no storms.
Had a nice long car-to-car day and made the summit via the Wittich Crack.
Climbed the NF accessed via the Grandstand with Ron Matous as guide.
Climbed with Exum Guides trip. A fantastic route I'd like repeat on my own now that I'm older.
Used Exum with a group of friends. What a beautiful mountain and fun climb. Camped at the lower saddle.

One day ascent
Great place for hiking. And interesting to find out that the national park was created over local objections.
One of my favorites
Complete Exum and Owen-Spalding as consolation prize after seeing Black Ice Couloir was in bad shape.
