Recap Rodeo Wall Adopt-A-Crag

Just as smokey conditions gave way to clear skies again in western Wyoming, on August 27th, 2020, fifteen volunteers showed up to contribute to the stewardship project at Rodeo Wall. The group involved climbers from groups such as Exum Mountain Guides, the Town Pump and even Jackson Hole News and Guide!

The primary focus of the Teton Climbers’ Coalition event was the maintenance of the crag’s belay area, where a new retaining wall was built. Additionally, volunteers widened the system trail’s upper section, and installed straw erosion control blankets over informal user-created trails to prevent further erosion and damage of habitat.

A huge thanks to the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, Teton Mountaineering, Bridger Teton National Forest, The American Alpine Club and Access Fund for giving the TCC the opportunity to contribute to the community by maintaining this local crag! And to our volunteers for a great effort! We hope it was fun, and look forward to seeing you at future Adopt-A-Crag events!

We also hope to return to Rodeo Wall soon to conduct further trail clearing, as well as place a couple of signs regarding responsible climbing in the area, so stay tuned for a potential phase 2!
