Teton Canyon Bouldering Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Necessary Hops. Start with left foot way out past ...
Bouldering in the Tetons at high elevations and alpine environment. Mostly uncrowded except for a few locals warming up or projecting. Some boulders need cleaning and a few include sketchy landings. Multiple pads are encouraged. Route grades tend to vary from v~ easy to v~ 9/10. Granite makes up the majority of the boulders but a few limestone boulders can be found. Many open projects and FA's await those eager to explore. This area has huge!!! potential. Bring lots of water, sunscreen, brushes, extra chalk, bug spray, bear spray, and some snacks. Approaches vary from 1 minute to 60 minutes of up hill hiking. Shares trails with hikers and backpackers who tend to be interested in what you're doing and ask questions and want to take photos. Bouldering began in the area long before I have. Most of what I am posting is beta passed on by other locals or is to the best of my knowledge, first accents and open projects. If any information is incorrect, please, let me know and we can correct the beta.
From Driggs Idaho, head east on Little Ave toward Grand Targhee Ski Resort. Take a Right into Teton Canyon. About 1/2 mile in boulders appear on left hillside. Many open projects and FA's in this area. Continue past Treasure Mountain Boyscout Camp over cattle guard. Left hand side of road is "The RahTard Ed Wyoming Turddle Head". Four Routes, V-2 through V-5 (one move HUGE DYNO). Do this boulder. Continue to end of road and hike to, or past waterfall for 30+ established problems and even more open and potential projects.

I tried to find this area and could not. Do you actually drive into Scout Map? Attached is map. Is this the location? Is there anyway that you can share coordinates or other directions, if I am wrong. I would love to spend time here. Thank you.

The directions above are pretty good, assuming you can locate the waterfall wall (see my comment on the main Teton Canyon page about guidebook at the Yostmark climbing shop). From the parking lot just past the Teton Canyon Campground, take the main trail heading east (toward the backside of the Tetons). You will see the Arms Deal Wall on your left - highly visible and bad-ass. Keep walking past that for about 5 minutes and you will eventually see a climber's trail heading up and left to a bunch of small cliffs with small waterfalls in various places. Walk towards these. The boulders start in the talus field below these cliffs, and extend east along the base of the cliff band and into the forest. The actual waterfall wall is down and right of the cliffs that are visible from the trail, and is totally bad-ass as well. We climbed roughly a dozen problems on our visit, all of which were very high quality. Definitely looks like there is plenty of room for more. Great climbing and possible to find shade throughout most of the day. Way better than any of the bouldering I've done in GTNP.
