Owen Spalding Route  Sucess!

I especially enjoyed the shadow of the Grand falling on Idaho as the sun rose. What a wonderful morning.

Upper Exum Solo  Sucess!

I jumped the gap that was supposed to be a hand traverse on Wall Street. Later I heard Glen Exum did the same thing on his first ascent. Validation is a beautiful thing.

Direct Exum, 1997

Marcus Folger and I climbed the Direct Exum in summer of 1997. We bivied at the moraines, then did the route and came back down in one day. I remember the route-finding on the upper part of the lower Exum was tricky. I think I got off-route and ended up going sideways along a horizontal crack, but I eventually got back on route and the crux 5.7 pitch was fantastic. The exposure was amazing and the rock was perfect and took great pro. The upper Exum was fun and easy, though long. We actually bailed a pitch or two below the summit by traversing over to the Owen-Spalding rappels because Marcus had some bad blisters on his feet. All in all, it was a great day.

North Face, 2001  Sucess!

Chris Thomas and I climbed the North Face in summer of 2001. We bivied before getting on the glacier, got up very early, and blasted the route in approach shoes, summitted, then hurried down the Garnet Canyon trail back to the car all in one day. The weather was perfect and so was the climb. I highly recommend this one.

Upper Exum

This is one of those classic peaks that you always look forward to, and it did not disappoint. We climbed it in two days camping just below the saddle on the first night. One of my top 10 peaks so far!

O/S between work shifts, Direct Exum, and Beyer East Face I  Sucess!

Got off work at midnightish, summitted at sunrise, ran down to get back to work at 1 p.m. (O/S) July 2005.

Direct Exum- Beautiful day, chipped a chunk off of my patella (kneecap)on the way up before the caves after falling through a moat in the snow. Still led a couple pitches, had a lot of fun, but didn't bend my knee the entire way down! (or for the next 2 weeks for that matter) (July 2007)

Beyer East Face 1-- Great climb, great partners, really nasty weather. A grand epic.
