Deepest Condolences - Passing of an Exum Guide

Our deepest condolences go out to the Exum Mountain Guide family and the family of guide George Gardner who fell and died this past weekend on the Grand Teton.

We've had a lot of Exum guides as customers, friends, and fellow adventurers and it's sad to hear of the loss of George. It was said of him that he was the most smiling happy guide among them and that he was a beautiful climber.

I recall meeting George a few summers ago while climbing on the Grand when our rope team and the one he was guiding topped out around the same time. I recall his client saying to me how solid of a climber George was and how he was a great guide.

RIP brother...
