The Grand Teton – For Experienced Climbers

Challenging routes on the Grand Teton will put your climbing skills to the test.

Exum guides several more serious routes on the Grand Teton including the Complete Exum Ridge, Petzoldt Ridge, North Face, North Buttress, East Ridge, and the Enclosure Couloir/Northwest Ridge.

These are usually two-day climbs involving high camps or bivouacs, complex rock/snow/ice approaches and upper fifth-class rock-climbing. Each of these routes is a classic and well worth an alpinist’s serious attention.

Please contact our office for more information. When necessary we will put you in touch with a guide who will discuss your experience, abilities, and goals. These are difficult climbs in an alpine setting, usually several thousand feet in length and subject to rock fall and bad weather. They are usually guided one-on-one, and only with a climber who has previously climbed an easier route with an Exum guide.
