Equipment List & Rentals

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

Grand Teton Climb

Equipment list for individuals participating in a climb of the Grand Teton.

Multi-Day Climbs

The specific equipment required for a multi-day climb depends on location and duration. Use this list as a starting point for working with your guide.


Exum provides helmets, harnesses, carabiners, belay devices, and ice axes free of charge for use by Exum guided climbers. Jackson has a very active climbing community, so many climbing items are available for rental at reasonable rates. In general, you must provide your own clothing items, as it is difficult if not impossible to rent them. Exum offers the following rentals:

Approach Shoes

Exum stocks approach shoes in most sizes.  Approach shoes are used in all group schools and for most climbs. $10 per day


Exum stocks a limited number of boots. Boots are generally only used in early season when there is still considerable snow in the range. $10 per day


Exum stocks crampons appropriate for use in the Tetons. FREE


Exum has some day packs and occasionally larger packs appropriate for use on the Grand Teton. $10 per day
