    Rock Climbing

    From crag to summit.


    Climbing in Jackson Hole includes everything from a casual afternoon session to a multi-day alpine adventure.

    The Tetons are a popular destination for climbers of all levels, and the region’s rich climbing history continues to motivate and challenge new generations of climbers. Paul Petozlt instrumentally popularized climbing in this region, inspiring generations of climbers to crimp, layback, and chimney their way through Jackson’s iconic granite and limestone rock. For experts, the range has more than 1,000 rated and named routes along its walls, buttresses, aretes, spires, and summits, and new routes are continually being developed. Most climbs in the Tetons are traditional (aka trad) multi-pitch routes that require a hike, often with an alpine start, to reach the base. There are also bolted limestone crags for sport climbing around the valley at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, inside Grand Teton National Park, and south of Jackson. Whether you’re a first-time climber or experienced with an ambitious objective in mind, hiring a local guide is a great way to ensure you stay safe and on route.

    Questions about Climbing in Jackson Hole

    Local Tip: Try the Via Ferrata

    If you’re interested in trying rock climbing but are also intimidated by the thought of hauling yourself up a bare rock wall, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has 15 via ferratas, more than anywhere else in the U.S. Originating in Italy and translating as “iron way,” via ferrata is a type of rock climbing route in which rungs, ladders, and cables have been affixed to the natural rock. These features provide climbers with extra holds and also serve as protection from falling (on a via ferrata, climbers clip into cables, which have stoppers every 6 to 20 feet).
