CAM Project

The Climbing Area Modernization Project is an ongoing initiative to ensure the safety of all climbing areas in Jackson Hole. This was the top climbing community priority based on our public survey. All bolts and anchors at Blacktail Butte will have been replaced by Fall 2023!  In addition, we are placing drop-in anchors at Hoback Shield and Rodeo Wall, making these three climbing areas safe and accessible. In addition, we have created guidelines for new route development grounded in experience, sustainability, and respect for land managers and other climbers.


In collaboration with the BTNF and JHMR and with the help of community member volunteers, TCC has initiated trail work at Rodeo Wall and Happy Hour Wall to prevent erosion and provide safe accessibility. This work is ongoing and will include additional climbing areas in the future.

The Town Pump

The TCC has been a co-host of the Town Pump summertime bouldering series, a Jackson Hole climbing tradition since 2015, with Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation. This summer of 2023, the TCC embraced the responsibility of organizing and managing this beloved weekly summer gathering at the Teton Boulder Park.


Rec Center Climbing Gym

Our advocacy efforts and collaboration with the Town and County, Parks and Rec, and the local community assisted in increasing the size of the Teton County Parks and Rec Center climbing gym from 5750 sq feet to 8500 sq feet. With a projected completion date in April 2024, we’re eagerly anticipating the opening of this new climbing facility, which includes a dedicated mezzanine bouldering area. 

Teton Bighorn Sheep

Last year the TCC took part in looking at the NPS scoping of its Teton Bighorn Sheep Winter Habitat Protection plan. The TCC worked with the Teton Backcountry Alliance, Winter Wildlands Alliance, the Access Fund, and the American Alpine Club to develop recommendations for safeguarding the bighorn sheep while considering the impacts on winter recreation. Ecosystem stewardship and winter access are core to our mission, but responsible stewardship sometimes requires compromise.



Following our inaugural film festival of 2022, plans are already in motion for AlpinFilm 2023, with an expanded venue at the Center for the Arts!

Centennial Celebration

Celebrating Women on the Grand, 1923-2023!  One hundred years later, the TCC is recognizing the accomplishments of Eleanor Davis, the first woman to summit the Grand Teton with a year-long celebration of women in the mountains. The centennial kicked off on the first night of the inaugural AlpinFilm Festival, with a panel discussion entitled Moving Mountains that explores the past, present, and future of female Teton pioneers. The celebration continues the week of August 24, 2023 with an all women’s climb of the Grand and a week of films, speakers, and a final celebration party at the AAC’s Climber’s Ranch in GTNP.
