    I have. I didn't use a guide service but I've heard good things about Exum Guides. Which route did you hire them to climb? Feel free to PM me if you have specific questions, I may or may not be able to answer them depending on which route you're doing.

    Protip: the AAC climber's ranch is dirt cheap (it was $8 a night when I went but that was some time back) and has a better view than the $400/day hotels at Jenny Lake, but you'll need to make reservations early because it fills up.
    Protip#2: don't leave the lower saddle without pooping on the glorious contraption they have built there. If there's a toilet with a better view in the world, I don't know of it.
    Protip#3: don't leave Jackson Hole without having breakfast at the Bunnery.

    Thanks for the Protips! I have heard the views from the throne atop the world are unreal!

    I don't climb. I see only two options to it: 1. make it to the top and then have to climb back down; or, 2. fall off--either going up or climbing back down.
