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.
Upper Exum for the second time. Great trip with Kevin and Bill, we were hoping to do the Middle the next day but woke up to snow.
W/ C. Treiber; Via OS & Wittich crack variation, very high winds kept us off the Exum ridge.
Left the caves at 4:15am, summited at 9:00am.
Beautiful day; Owen-Spalding route, no wind, sun shine all day. Rare day for October in my home state, especially at this elevation.
VERY cool climb on fun and historic alpine rock. The joke was on me: I was looking at the "graffiti" on the summit (and silently cursing the inconsiderate climbers), then I realized it was the work of the first ascenders :). Special shout out to the boys at Teton Gravity Research and Phillip at JHMG. Thank you!
Went with Harold Hall and his brother Ron. Spent two nights and three days at the Upper saddle. Summited on August fifth, going by way of the Wittich Crack variation. A hard slog, but well worth it. My very favorite climbing trip!
Right at the base of the black dike trying to start the exum. A looong way to hike to be followed by an epic descent in the dark. Thank god for having a competent partner to help me down!
Seventh time on the Grand, single day ascents still as hard as I remembered.
OS is great fun, Direct Exum is particularly beautiful and magnificent climbing.
Climbed with Pat Ormond of Exum via the Direct Exum.
Soloed the OS with no problems other than cold fingers and toes.
Completely missed passing through the Meadows in the dark but was a nice surprise when we reached the Moraine. Chimneys had some ice from a recent storm but not a problem. Belly Crawl wasn't bad at all. Nice scrambling above the Upper Saddle and great views on top.
Camped in the Moraine. Wind was blowing pretty hard, felt like I was in a trash bag, got less than an hour of sleep. Climbed the Upper Exum in stellar conditions. Great views all around.
Tried the Lower Exum after pitching some crap rock down in the moraines, buddy of mine fell and had a boulder land on his chest prompting an immediate descent. After shortroping him to the lower saddle, he toppled over from exhaustion prompting oxygen and first aid treatment by the rangers with assistance from Exum Guides. After escorting him back to the tent, I ended up just soloing the (very wet) OS and helped a group of people descend (no helmets, rappel devices... what gives?). Broke camp, trekked out and drove back to Reno all in that same 24 hours. Long ass day.
