OS Route  Sucess!

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.

The Grand Ascent  Sucess!

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.

Owen Spalding  Sucess!

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

Interesting day  Sucess!

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...

Owen Spaulding  Sucess!

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!

Upper Exum  Sucess!

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  Sucess!

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.

Upper Exum Ridge  Sucess!

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

Os from the lower saddle

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.

Direct Exum Ridge  Sucess!

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!

Upper Exum  Sucess!

Upper Exum from camp at Lower Saddle. Scrambled most of it. Led the crux friction pitch. Easy but fun.

Upper Exum  Sucess!

Oh Yes Route  Sucess!

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

Direct Exum  Sucess!

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!

The Grand  Sucess!

Upper Exum route...lived up to the reports, doable, but quite the climb...great climb.

Upper Exum  Sucess!

Left Lupine trailhead at midnight, hit the saddle by 5 am, and the peak by 11:00 am (yes we were slow, and there was some traffic on the route). Back to the trailhead at 6pm (again, yes we were slow). Awesome mountain and fun route (Upper Exum).
