Tears of a Clown has afternoon sun. It is a large 400-500ft slab of limestone. The Tears of a clown climbing route runs up the center of the prominent slab. It has fun movement on 5.7 slab (some variations possible).

Getting There 

Travel up the Teton Canyon Rd to the Cave Mountain turn. Cross the bridge and park in the primitive camping area on the left. Walk downstream past the metal gate until you reach the base of the cliff. Clear trail leads there.
