      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Grand Teton- Complete Exum Ridge

Recommended Posts

We did this route about a week ago, and had a great time. Started from the car at 2:30 a.m. and were able to make it to the start of the ridge at sun-up at a lesiurely pace. Climbed for about 3 pitches, of cold windy terrain, and then got lost. We ended up to the right of the route, however the rock was still solid, and got some good solid face climbing pitches. This also was a blessing because the ridge protected us from the wind....anyways, topped out and made the two single roped rappels down the owen/spaulding route. These raps were pretty iced up.

The exum was good to go as of a week ago. bigdrink.gif

LOL! Pax...looks like great minds think a like!

Great route....even though I had to settle for one of the latter ascents, unlike Mr. Husbands who probably had one of the first ascents way back in the 90's. Shit, a 50 meter gold line rope...that must have been heavy!
