About Teton Canyon:

Teton Canyon holds an array of climbing possibilities for sport climbing, traditional routes, and winter ice climbing. Most of the rock climbs are on polished Gniess and range from 5.7 traditional routes to overhanging 5.13 sport routes. Most of these climbs are located on a formation called the Grand Wall, which sits on the left just past the trailhead. There are other obscure routes further up the South Fork Canyon for those adventurous enough to go looking. The ice climbs usually start forming in early November most years. There are over two dozen routes located between the Treasure Mountain Boy Scout Camp, extending up the South Fork Canyon to just below Sunset Lake. Most of the routes are one or two pitches in length, ranging from WI3 to M7 or harder. Access via skies or snow shoes and distance ranges from 3 to 10 miles....one way! Many of the routes in the upper canyon require crossing and climbing in avalanche terrain, however many of the routes in the lower canyon are relativily safe.
Nearest town or city: Driggs
Directions: From Driggs head north toward Taghee Resrot up Ski Hill road. The turn off is the last right which takes you into Teton canyon(before the steep incline up to the resort). Take the road all the way back to the trail head and follow the trail about .25 miles back. Take a right at the first waterfall you can't miss it!
