Never been, and a few of us are heading up there in September and so....

- Any free places to camp anyone knows about?

- Any sport locations that are rather splendid - 5.6 to 5.10 range.

- Any locations that are toprope-able?

I've looked through the Rock Climbing Washington book but thought I'd see what other info and advice is out there. Thanks for any input.

Pick up the Tieton guide by Marlene Ford and Jim Yoder, it should answer most of your questions for you.

Why are you still talking about the Teton mountains in Wyoming when the OP was looking for info about the camping and climbing near the town of Tieton, WASHINGTON?

For sport check out Lava Point and Dream Wall.

There's lots of free camping on the road up to there as well.

All those climbs are top-ropable - you just gotta lead up first. Wink

If you are asking if one can walk around up the back to the anchors, then I don't know as I have never tried to do that.
