Grand Teton - North Face
This peak is #2 on the Height List for Wyoming . This peak is #3 in Prominence List for Wyoming .Grand Teton is a high, dramatic, multi-summited massif in Grand Teton National Park. The upper part of the mountain is made out of granite and features many fine rock routes. It's one of the most esthetic and challenging mountains in the lower 48 states.

1. Upper Exum Ridge (1931) Glenn Exum, solo. 5.5, II, 1200m, trad. This is a fantastic route and is extremely popular, among guided and non-guided parties. The route is significantly longer than the Owen-Spalding, the rock is generally excellent and the views spectacular. This is also a good winter route as it melts off quickly. One problem is that it is difficult to escape off this route in case of bad weather.
