Exum’s two-day privately guided ascents of the Grand Teton are for friends or families wanting to climb the Grand together as a team, or individuals wanting to climb privately with a guide. Private climbs allow the flexibility of being able to move at your own pace, whether that be slower or faster than average. Your preparation can be done privately as well, or you can take our group classes.
You may also choose to climb privately if you want to climb with a specific guide.
The Grand Teton is one of the classic climbs in North America and it’s on every climber’s bucket list. Exum guides hundreds of climbers to the summit of the Grand Teton every summer – most of whom have never climbed prior to their first day of instruction with us. Our guides will teach you what you need to know to climb the Grand Teton with us – you only have to arrive fit and ready for the adventure. Regardless of your experience, we require all climbers to participate in our climbing classes, and all climbers must successfully complete the classes in order to attempt the climb. We recommend two days of instruction, however when requested, one day of private instruction can be substituted for the two days of group classes. In some cases, with experienced climbers, a check-out climb can take the place of the instruction. Typically when groups are climbing privately and participating in private instruction, the same guide will lead both the instruction and the Grand Teton climb. This allows the group to be very cohesive and allows the guide to get to know everyone and their individual abilities.
Please call our office to discuss your climbing plans. Our office staff members have all climbed the Grand multiple times and will be able to answer your questions and describe the climb far better than we could write about it here.
Climbing the Grand Teton is an unforgettable and often life-changing experience!
