Amazing little crag with a few of the most steep classic hard lines in the area. You'll rarely see others climbing on this wall, which makes it great if you want to climb hard in solitude. Just about the same quality granite you'll find at the Main Wall in Teton Canyon, albeit much steeper on the most tantalizing 45 degree part of the Arms Deal Wall.

Morning shade, noon sun.

Getting There 

Park in the main parking lot at the end of Teton Canyon and start hiking on the Alaska Basin trail. Maybe 50 feet from the trail head, take a left onto a climber's trail. After roughly 100 meters or so (if you reach a small boulder field, you've gone too far), there will be another left fork in the trail that goes uphill towards an obvious wall with a large overhang above a slab. That's the Arms Deal Wall. Hike up to it and to reach the upper ledge routes, either 1) hike to the left at the base of the slab until it wraps up towards the right and follow that to the climber's left of the overhang, or 2) scramble up a short 4th/5th class section in the slab that will be slightly to your right as soon as you reach the base of the slab.

Featured Route For Arms Deal Wall

Arms Deal 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ 30 E7 6c  Wyoming : Teton Canyon : ... : Upper Ledge
Phenomenal route with super classic moves. Takes equal parts technique and brawn. The first three bolts are fun and juggy moving you into an okay shake out stance. Then it's on with less than ideal holds, small feet, funky moves (I won't give any key beta away!) and lots of core tension up until the 6th bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
