Equipment List & Rentals


Effective Friday, July 30th, 2021, facemasks are required in all federal buildings.  The Exum office, and all other Exum facilities, are federal buildings.  All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask when inside any Exum office building. Visitors must also wear a mask whenever a 6 ft. distance from others can’t be maintained. We thank you for understanding.  Our goal is to minimize, as much as possible, the exposure to COVID-19 for you, our employees, and the community at large.  We look forward to sharing great, and memorable climbing adventures with our guests!

Equipment Lists

To help you pack for your trip, we’ve prepared the following equipment lists. The “Essential Items” under each list must be brought with you the morning of your activity. Your guide will ensure you have these items before setting out. Some of these items can be rented from us or locally in Jackson. Please check out Rentals for more information. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Exum office at (307) 733-2297
