Description:

The Exum Ridge follows the south ridge of the peak. The lower section of the ridge cointains 6 to 7 pitches of moderate chimneys and faces, including the famous Black Face. Above the Golden Stair, where Wall Street joins the ridge, the climbing eases considerably, but the crux of the Upper Exum is above at the Friction Pitch.

5 out of 5 stars Sweeet!

I used the Exum Guide shoes on the route (which I bought before I came out to WY) thinking they were made for it. Well, they suprisingly worked great and I never had to put the rock shoes on. Car to car in 15 hours. Went down the wrong gully on descent. Stay to skiers right.

4 out of 5 stars Excellent Route.

My friend I climbed the route in the middle of the week and had to one else on the route. Good fun easy, fast, and good clean fun. An excellent option to reach the summit of the Grand.
