Climbing Grand Teton - Day 2

This is the fourth entry of four chronicling a recent tip to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming to climb Grand Teton, the highest peak in the Teton Range, at 13,770-feet. My climbing partners were Chaz Wendling and Alison Calderara. We hired Exum Mountain Guides to train us and take us on the climb. They require that their clients pass 2 days of Mountain School before being guided on the "Grand". Our plan was to do the 2 days of Mountain School, take a rest day, then climb the next 2 days.

Also, be sure to check out lots of photos from the climb.

July 18:

First day of Exum Mountain School. Our guide/instructor was Molly Loomis - a great guide, very easy-going, she joked around with us very easily. We met her at the Exum facility near Jenny Lake, then we took the boat across to the Hidden Falls area.
