The first day of climbing for kids and families from the Doug Coombs Foundation. The Doug Coombs Foundation was established “to offer children from low-income backgrounds the ability to enjoy the amazing experiences offered in Teton County”. Each summer Exum provides climbing at no cost to the Foundation so that these local kids get the opportunity to experience climbing in Grand Teton National Park.

Welcome to the Exum Guide Service and School of Mountaineering in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. During the summer season Exum offers rock climbing instruction and guided mountain climbing. During the winter we offer some of the best backcountry skiing adventures in the US. As the oldest guide service in North America, Exum has guided the Grand Teton for over 80 years. Individuals from age 8 to 80 have been able to climb the Grand Teton after only two days of climbing instruction. Our programs range from a fun day on the rocks for the whole family, to serious alpine adventures.
