The Parks and Rec climbing gym remains on track to open May 30. Barring unforeseen delays, Teton climbers will finally have a gym again… a full decade after the Enclosure climbing gym closed its doors.

The gym’s Grand Opening will be held from 5pm – 8pm May 30. Memberships will be available for purchase in advance of the gym’s opening. Parks and Rec has yet to announce an on-sale date. 

Those interested in purchasing a membership will need to create an account online, which may be done here. The Parks and Recreation has released the new facility fees, which will take effect with the opening of the new expansion at the end of May 2024.

Fees include admission to the new climbing gym as well as all other elements of the Rec Center.

The Teton Climbers’ Coalition was formed in March 2020 to ensure the climbing gym met the current and future needs of our community. Thanks to our community’s support, the gym’s size was increased from 5,750 square feet to 9,700 square feet. Equally important, an independent climbing gym consultant was brought in at the start of construction to ensure the gym’s overall quality.

Here’s a timeline of our advocacy:

While the TCC has expanded our mission since our start to include everything from the Climbing Area Modernization Program to the Centennial Celebration of the first female ascent of the Grand to Jackson’s very own AlpinFilm Festival, the climbing gym’s where it all began.
