What We Do
The Teton Climbers’ Coalition is a 501c3 non-profit organization that serves Teton climbers through stewardship, advocacy and engagement.
The Tetons are the epicenter of American mountaineering. We serve the climbers at their base—from neophytes to old schoolers, alpinists to boulderers, bolt clippers to ski mountaineers, guides, rangers, weekend warriors and armchair mountaineers alike. Our goal is to represent the interests of our entire community.

The organizational pillars of our work are:
We take care of the places in which we climb
We address issues on behalf of our community
We gather, educate and mobilize Teton climbers
The Teton Climbers’ Coalition held its first meeting on March 11, 2020… pretty much the day COVID started. While we began as a way to ensure the upcoming Teton County Rec Center climbing gym meets community needs, we quickly fanned out to address other priorities as well.
Respond to emergent issues and give voice to Teton climbers
Foster productive relationships with land managers, governmental agencies and non-profit organizations
Promote community and camaraderie among Teton climbers
Our Core Values
For one another and the environment
A future of Teton climbing that’s accessible and welcoming to all

Inspect and replace suspect bolts and anchors throughout the Greater Teton climbing area
The Town Pump
Co-host the Town Pump summertime bouldering series, a Jackson Hole climbing tradition since 2015, with Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation
