Variation just left of Black Face on Lower Exum?  (North_America: United_States: Wyoming: Western_Wy_: Grand_Teton_NP)

While climbing the grand via the lower exum this last weekend, I went left of the regular Black Face pitch (another party was climbing the line). Given that there was a piton about 40 feet up, decent gear, and some chalk, I'm assuming this is a common variation. Does anyone know if it has a different name and/or a different grade than the usual Black Face pitch? The piton that I mentioned is displayed in Richard Rossitier's (sp?) guide left of the pitons on the Black Face, but he doesn't discuss it.

Bumping a year later 'cause I ended up on this variation this past weekend (not on purpose) and found it both amazing and terrifying. Something about being 15' up on a rusty piton with my whole body shaking... Would love to know what its story is.

Cheers,
APH
