In 1929 a handsome young musician named Glenn Exum left his Idaho farm country to play saxophone for a summer dance band in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

He fell in love with the mountains, and returned the next summer to help build trails in the newly created Grand Teton National Park. Here he met a kindred soul in mountain guide Paul Petzoldt. Paul trained Glenn to be a climbing guide, and in the summer of 1931, on their first trip guiding together, Glenn made history: wearing leather-cleated football shoes and without a rope, he pioneered a new route up the mountain.

By Glen Exum. 131 pp.
