5 out of 5 stars Upper Exum

I just climbed this for the second time. It was actually a lot more fun since I knew where to go. This climb can be a little confusing the first time around.

Solo Solo ascent by: IsayAutumn on 2011-08-20 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars incredibly fun time

Solo, car to car, 11:20. Route finding was probably the crux, but it was all good and all fun. No need to hump up the camping gear. My time was onsight, and included several cigarette breaks. This could easily be done in under 10 hours, especially if you've been up there before.
