Looking up at the Tetons is one thing. Looking down from them? Indescribable. It’s no surprise climbers have been drawn to Jackson Hole for the better part of a century. But you don’t have to be an expert to get a taste for what it’s all about.
The Via Ferrata at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort offers a safe but thrilling introduction to rock climbing. You’ll scale granite faces and cross suspended bridges strapped into a secure cable system with an expert guide.
Ready to take it to the next level? Jackson is one of the birthplaces of mountaineering and guiding, so you’re in the right place. An experienced guide can help you navigate the Tetons’ granite faces and boulder fields with the right gear and the right attitude. The Guide Wall is a great place to start, offering five pitches of beautiful, moderate-level rock climbing. Popular routes get busy in the summer, so it’s best to go with a guide who can help you plan.
Climbing also offers unparalleled access to the landscape and history that makes Jackson Hole so iconic. When you’re high in the mountains looking down, it’s hard not to feel awe-struck. It’s a feeling that we hope inspires you to help preserve this special place as you live by The Wild Rules. While you’re out there, remember to practice Leave No Trace. Climbing and conservation history in Jackson often go hand-in-hand — ask your guide for more information or stop in to Teton Mountaineering for a guide book and history lesson.
