Description Suggest change

Grand Teton National Park offers the climber an array of climbing types, positions, settings and conditions. There's everything from two-pitch sunny crag adventures to mixed alpine endurance testpieces. A more detailed description of the climbing character can be found in the descriptions of each area.

Getting There Suggest change

Grand Teton National Park is located about 10 miles north of Jackson, WY. Directions to specific trailheads can be found in the individual areas.

Nearby Climbing

Suggest change
When visiting the Tetons, you might want to check out some of the other local climbing. The nearby climbing generally has less of a commitment factor, and is good for "rest" days or in questionable weather. Check out the Jackson Hole section for information on other climbing in the area.

The Teton Rock Gym in Driggs, Idaho has the areas only indoor climbing. (Enclosure is defunct)

And if the weather goes south but you still want to climb, be sure to check out Jackson Hole's new full-service climbing gym - The Enclosure Indoor Climbing Center;. Over 10,000 sqft of sweet climbing wall at the foot of the Tetons.
