DescriptionThis is a beautiful canyon on the West side of the Teton Range accessed through Driggs, Idaho. A handful of rock routes are available, and in the winter a few ice climbs. The rock routes primarily face South - and can be hot in the summer - but some are SW facing and don't get sun until the afternoon. The canyon is bustling with activity in the Summer (campers, hikers, boy scouts, etc.) but it seems very few people bother to actually climb here so. The rock routes are located on a granite formation at the end of the road. The ice climbs are located among the limestone cliffs on the south side.
Getting ThereFind your way to Driggs, Idaho - and turn East onto ski hill road, as if heading to the Grand Targhee ski area. Drive about 6 miles up the road, and veer right onto the dirt road into Teton Canyon (well marked).
Despite accessing this canyon from Idaho - you are actually in Wyoming. The border of Idaho/Wyoming is small town of Alta you pass through on Ski Hill Road.
In the summer, you can drive to the end of the road to access the rock climbs. Park at the end of the road (far lot). Take the major trail up the canyon, and you'll quickly see a climber's trail branching off to the left. Follow this trail for 5-10 minutes to reach the crag.
For winter ice climbs, park when the road is closed to traffic and ski/snowmobile up the road to the ice climbs. Expect 1-1.5 hour approach to access the ice climbs.
