The Classic Grand Teton

Join the thousands of Exum climbers that have reached the summit of North America's most iconic peak.

Towering above Jackson Hole at 13,770 feet, the Grand Teton is one of North America’s most famous and coveted summits. A climb on this iconic peak is never easy, and a successful ascent is a memorable achievement.

Our group climbs are the classic way to climb the Grand Teton. Your group will consist of climbers who have all passed our prerequisite classes (multi-pitch climbing, level I and level II), and we will put together the best-matched teams possible. Group climbs rely on participation and teamwork during your ascent, resulting in a heightened sense of accomplishment and an unforgettable bond with your fellow climbers. Most of our climbers have never climbed prior to their first day of instruction, and by the end of the second day, most are comfortable with all of the skills necessary to attempt the Grand Teton climb. All Grand Teton climbers must successfully complete the classes prior to the climb.
Exum Mountain Guides has guided thousands of climbers up the Grand Teton since the company became a park concession in 1931 and we have a remarkable success rate. No company is more qualified to guide the Grand Teton, and we are committed to providing all participants with an enjoyable experience. If you arrive fit, and ready for the adventure – our guides can teach you what you need to know in order to attempt the climb, and our guides do their best to get all climbers to the summit. It’s important to realize though, that weather and other factors, can occasionally prevent groups from reaching the top.
Climbing the Grand Teton is an unforgettable and often life-changing experience!
