Grand Indeed  Sucess!

Just an amazing time! First technical climb ever. Love the snow, the wind, the clouds, all of it. Nice to stand atop a mountain so grand knowing that millions of people view it from below.

Owen/Spalding  Sucess!

Fun and challenging climb with a great group of friends. The team of Steve, Dan, Cameron, Nik and myself had a perfect weather window. The belly roll and crawl had epic exposure. The double chimney, Owens chimney and Sargents chimney had snow and ice in sections making it a little more challenging. The Grand certainly lived up to its name!

Upper Exum  Sucess!

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!

OS   Sucess!

Climbed Owen Spalding in 1 day. Icy=spicy! Great climbing and weather held out thankfully. Hiking boots were a poor choice!

First up ...  Sucess!

Went with a great guide from Jackson Hole Mountain Guides. Left the parking lot at 9:30 and was up at the Corbett high camp at 1:30. Had beautiful weather. Help had to come in and rescue a bloke that had pulled a boulder on top of him and fell. Got up at 2:30 and headed to the summit at 3:30 on the Upper Exum and the Pawnal-Gilkey route. We were the first ones up and had the summit to ourselves for a 1/2 hour before we left. We could see the west thumb of lake yellowstone and the old faithful geyser basin 65 miles away.

Very fun  Sucess!

Owens Spalding. Hordes of people, terrifying afternoon storms, traffic jams outside Jackson Hole, and this was still one of the most enjoyable routes I've climbed. My partner and I debated for a while about what gear we'd need for the route, and finally opted to bring one 60m half rope, a tiny rack, rock shoes, harnesses, helmets... we ended up leaving the gear in our packs until the rappel. I would consider climbing again without a rope, but only if the weather were looking solid before the technical sections. Down-climbing wet granite sucks.

If your reasonably fit, do yourself a favor and do it in a day. We had a handful of route finding issues but still climbed car to car in 12 hours with what felt like a solid but not out of breath pace and plenty of breaks. Also! there is water consistently along the route (at least in August there was) You could probably get away with a single Nalgene.

Got off route on the central rib and ran out of daylight

Icy & cold  Sucess!

My wife & I climbed the P/G route with Jackson Hole Mountain Guides on a cold windy icy day. Made the summit, which was exhilarating, but will have to go back one day as we had no views to speak of from the top. JHMG is a great service!

Grand Day!  Sucess!

After gale force winds at the Upper Saddle forced us to retreat on the 16th, we returned on the 17th to climb the peak via the Owens Spalding Route. The Grand is an incredible mountain and the OS is an excellent, direct and easy route. We started late the second day, leaving the trailhead at 10:00 AM. We summited at 5:00 PM and had the whole peak to ourselves. It was glorious redemption after the previous day's failure.

Best Weather  Sucess!

Did Upper Exum route again. Best weather in 5 trips to the top. Met some great folks also. Saw Bear on the approach and had a great spot in the Meadows. People parachuting around the peaks and a glider plane also around.

Upper Exum  Sucess!

Big goal for me, finally accomplished. One day push from 11:45pm up to the summit via the Upper Exum Ridge by 10am. Sooo incredible!

Exum

Yes, climbed the lower and upper Exum (and other routes) to the summit. I love the Grand Teton. The next route to do is the North Ridge!
