Itinerary description

Great route, easy - 5.5 - but with beautiful positions and great views.
The approach, climb and descent for the summit of the Grand Teton via the Upper Exum ridge, approached along Wall Street. Below the 30m rappel on the Owen Spalding descent route, we went down the wrong gully and ended up next to Wall Street again. It is a perfectly good descent, a bit longer than the normal Owen Spalding descent but might be worth doing if there are a lot of people on OW.
