The Teton Boulder Project is a grassroots partnership between the Town of Jackson, Teton County Parks and Recreation Department and the Teton climbing community to build a bouldering park in Phil Baux Park at the base of Snow King Mountain.

The objectives of the TBP are as follows:
1. The first—to honor the historical role of Teton climbing in North American mountaineering—is represented by a metal retaining wall, into which the twelve most significant Teton mountaineering achievements will be inscribed.
2. The second—to remember climbers who have died in the Tetons and while climbing abroad—is represented by a circular form that mimics the stone structure atop the Enclosure, a subsummit of the Grand Teton. The TBP’s use of a similar ring will create a contemplative space that allows park users to reflect on the power of the Tetons as well as on the loss of loved ones who have perished in their midst.
3. The boulders themselves comprise the TBP’s third objective: to create a singular climbing experience. The boulders, which will be constructed by Entre Prises, will be a maximum of 12 feet high and feature climbing from 5.5 to 5.15.

On Wednesday, August 11, at 6 p.m., we will officially put a shovel in Phil Baux Park at the base of Snow King in Jackson, Wyoming, to begin construction. Burgers, brats and beer will be served as the Teton climbing community gathers in celebration. Spread the word, and we'll hope to see you there.

Shouldn't these be boulder problem grades? and also, is anybody who climbs 5.15s gonna go to this place?
