Awesome! The Tetons are beautiful. Allison and I were already planning our return trip before we even left. I'll have to add the complete Exum (instead of just the upper) to that plan :)

Keep the TRs coming. It looks like you two have had a great summer.

Looks awesome. :drink: Particularly nice write up! Glad everything worked out with the car. Laura and I got stuck in Wenatchee for a long weekend under similar circumstances, and were lucky to make it back to Seattle in time for work.

Val,
I somehow missed your TR from last year. I just went back and looked: nice photos! I was admiring the middle all day. Looks like there are some very nice routes on it.

Brian,
Thanks! We are now itching to rid ourselves of the Saab. One experience like that is enough.

Obadiah, Solid work!!! :rock: Great to see you got back to the CMC on Moran. I know you've been wanting to get back there. I will definitely add the Complete Exum to my to do list. The rest of the Tetons are on my list to get to for climbing (the backpacking was pretty awesome. Great photos as always (plus I really liked your 4th of July ones too).

Such an awesome trip! :drink2: As ever, a great adventure shared with Obadiah, and a many thanks to him for the impressive leads and route finding. I initially was a bit disappointed to 'settle' for the Tetons, having my initial sights set on the Canadian Rockies' Mt Robson. But I was blown away by the impressive beauty of the Teton range (first time there!) and can't wait to go back for some more climbs. Meanwhile, we'll wait for a better weather window for a Mt Robson expedition in the future ...

Really nice photos! Makes me long for some nice solid, alpine rock!

Very cool, guys - sounds like fantastic climbing in a great position. The mandatory canoe approach also adds to the charm.

Car problems far from home and in the middle of nowhere are never fun. At least this one wasn't snaffle induced (probably?).

Is the CMC route set up for climbing with a 70 m rope to avoid the mandatory downclimbing, or would one be better off climbing on halfs for double-rope raps?

Great TR guys. The photo of the tetons from a distance is prize-worthy, really!

The routes look quite fun and I'm looking forward to getting up to the Tetons for my own adventures. Sorry you had such trouble with the car, but you dealt with it like a true adventurer. Bravo.
