Visiting the Tetons but want something with no commitment? Try a day of sport climbing at Blacktail Butte. The limestone climbing is technical, polished, and generally hard... but the view is world class! The routes are mostly 5.11s and 5.12s, with a handful of 5.10s. There are about 20 routes to keep you busy between the three walls - lower, middle, and upper.
Park in a developed turnout just a little North of the Moose junction (a few miles north of the airport). Follow the stairs up to Lower Blacktail Butte, or the trail heading south to Upper Blacktail.
