Grand Teton - OS Route  Sucess!

Hid in the caves for awhile on 7/11/12 to wait out a late morning thunderstorm. Stayed at the Lower Saddle and then up the next morning. Beautiful day, uneventful and a fun rappel.

Direct Exum  Sucess!

Really lucked out with weather. The direct variation to the 5th pitch on the lower exum is incredible!

Lucky weather!  Sucess!

Climbed the Upper Exum Ridge. Caught a lucky lighting/storm free day between two nasty ones. Did not use any guide service, just maps, photos, and a good climbing partner. First time above 13,000! Beautiful day!

3rd times the charm!  Sucess!

Direct Exum after being stormed off @ the saddle 3 days prior with the Gold Face in mind. Was going to do Cathedral traverse, but the weather window was less than perfect and so we thoguht to try Gold Face again, got to the saddle once more and saw a stowm forming, banged out Upper Exum quickly and ran down the the caves where an apocolyptic lightning storm hailed ~ 2 inches in less than 5 minutes and set small land slides from Disappointment peak hucking boulders the size of minicoopers dozens of yards into the air. We just watched in aww from the safety of the caves. Luckily nobody died up top that day. We checked and for real they could have.

incredible stuff  Sucess!

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

Up I Go

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)

OS route  Sucess!

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.
