|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||13770 ft / 4197 m|
Ascent Trip ReportA great round 2 on the Grand with Kevin, Evan and Paul. Petzoldt Ridge is a total classic and was probably my first grade III climb. Was a little burned out by the time we got to Upper Exum, which fortunately was cruiser. highlights were of course the views of Middle on the way up, watching climbers across the way on Lower Exum, navigating the Window and subsequent ledge traverse, and the tower rappel. Rock quality on this route is some of the best in the Tetons. A great alpine adventure. We even got snow flurries on the summit!
