I can see your Tetons from here
A few weeks ago I spent a just over a week in the Tetons. This photo is of Polly, from SLC climbing the 4th pitch of the Lower Exum. A group of 5 of us attempted the complete Exum ridge car to car. We got shut down by wet rock and ice on the route. The night before it snowed about 2-4cm on the mountain and made the ledges icy and the faces wet. We bailed off climbers left to on a ledge system that takes you to the start of Wall street.
Check out some of Matt's photo's here;
Earlier in the week a group of 5 of us, Three "Cheesedicks" and 2 "FIBs" made the top of the Grand via the Direct Petzodlt ridge. The route was super fun with the cruxes no harder than 8. I led the first three pitches, Adam from Chitown lead the rest of the ridge, then we unroped to the top via the upper Exum.
