Description Suggest change

In Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, a few climbers had practiced on the three Jenny Lake Boulders (Falling Ant Slab, Cutfinger Rock, Red Cross Rock) from the late 1940s through the 1950s. Among these climbers were Yvon Chouinard, Bob Kamps, John Gill and others. Between 1958-59 John Gill established the North Corner V8 and Gill Route V6 or V7. Both on Red Cross Rock.

Now I'm not saying Jenny Lake boulders are world class by any means, but if you are looking for a great time, beautiful views, and to get out on some rock with extreme historical value then this is a definite stop! There are climbs for all levels and the rock quality is bomb proof.

From my personal experience, I was the only person bouldering so you may be lucky have this quite spot all to yourself.

Also, anyone that stumbles onto this page and has been there, please help me with adding the routes. Its been a long time since I've been and need to try and find the paper with the route names on it that I received at the Jenny Lake Ranger Station (pick one up it helps).

And lastly, Enjoy the amazing climbing and Crush Hard!

Getting There Suggest change

From Moose, drive 8 miles north to Jenny Lake campground and the nearby Jenny Lake Ranger Station. From the ranger station, go 100 yards west to a bicycle path and then north about 100 yards to three historic boulders. Cutfinger Rock's south face is seen first left of the path and Falling Ant Slab is just west 15 yards towards Jenny Lake. Red Cross Rock is 39 yards north of Cutfinger; adjacent to the bike path on left.
